Via Eastern

shadows on the right side  
tell me right is south.

i look and my internal
compass and see
straight ahead is east.

sometimes it's good
to check our direction.

looking east then,
there are old ruins.

a country prone 
to earthquakes;
nothing endures

everything falls.

beyond the eastern gates
the scene is rubble.

fallen stone columns
point the way east

somewhere out there
there are tidier scenes,

or so we hope.
