A Poem About Giving Directions

I GAVE DIRECTIONS TO TWO PEOPLE TODAY AND I DON’T LIVE HERE

Dateline Alberta:

Walking down a rural road admiring the brilliant yellow of the canola fields

A truck pulled up next to me and the guy said “Excuse me sir”

Where is ‘blah blah’ address in such ‘n such subdivision he appealed

Well I of course shouldn’t have known where any addresses were

But I heard that morning that there was a subdivision by that name

A mile down this rural road in the direction he was going

(so I told him even though I am not from around here)

Since “I just work here” being able to give directions ain’t my aim

If I hadn’t heard I would have no way of knowing

I walked another half mile (about one km)

Then a car pulls up next to me in front of the local burger place

The guy asks me where the culvert manufacturer is

(that I had just walked past on the rural road)

So I told him

But I don’t want to seem like a local face

I’m just here in a business mode

Have you ever felt forced into a role you did not want

It could be something like this or in some other manner

Playing a part as if you were a printer font

Feeling like you are holding up a banner

That is not you

Be that as it may

Tomorrow I will walk to the subdivision

To see what else might lie that way

This is an experimental jazz tune from my second album “ESCAPE” which I composed after waking with the basic song structure going through my head.  Thus, I called it “Dreamed Of”.
