Strobe Light

The path is a spiral staircase
lit by strobe

When the light is on
you can see where you’ve been
and where you’re headed

When the light is off
you keep going where you were headed
and pray you don’t get turned around
in the storm

When the light returns
you reasses your North
breathe
soak up the light

When the light goes out
you become the nightlight
in the dark

continuing round and round

up and up

until

you become the light
