Eastward


Artwork Notes:

Some places
You come to
Almost by accident

Others
Take
A bit more effort

Nobody
Comes down from the mountain
Without first
Having to climb it

Nobody comes to the end
Of the trail
Without first
Traveling its length

Nobody comes up
From the sea
Without first going under

And nobody arrives
In that small town across the bay
Without knowing first where it is

But mostly
That’s just because
Someone keeps stealing the sign

-Matt Beard
