Have you lived —
On a numbered avenue,
Did you wonder, can I walk them all the way down to number zero,
or all the way up, to infinity?

Have you noticed
A hole in the ground, wondered
Can I dig all the way through?

Have you peered down the middle
Of a tree lined boulevard,
asked yourself
Is there really a place,
Where the road stops, leaving only trees?

Did you walk,
alongside the ocean
Craned your eyes to see
The beach across?

Did you write,
A poem in verse
Wished all words to come
Continue this rhyme?

Have you lived?
