Tracking You

The fly in the ointment. In much of Europe the Romans may not have planned some roads. There are certain signs that even older "straight tracks" predated many roads of the Empire, straight tracks that are still seen in remnant archeological alignments. It is certain however that road construction was a Roman invention, and as seen below, it involved concrete of a sort.

Tracking You

I follow the trail
you left for me, headed straight
like old Roman roads,
straight for the day star
of another realm farther
from here than my life,
than the heron's flight.

I tread on the verge of things
recalling your scent.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
