Soft Spot in the Road (Directions in the Manual)

soft spot in the road
(directions in the manual)

rock gently back and forth
from the mucky stuck spot
to get yourself on
to the desired future.
it is easy enough.
let the movements
dissolve each other
like dust on ice - go
with the flow
one after another,
repeating after me:
what it would be,
what it could be:
and once askew -
forward motion appears
on the horizon, something
happens, and then
all that mud
in the rearview at last
