At the roundabout, take the first exit. 

At the roundabout,

Turn left.

Says it, modern day navigation.

 

Turn left,

Like all those before.

Jammed in tiny

Metal

Vehicles.

Press escape to exit.

There’s even a toll to pay.

 

I could turn right,

Instead.

I argue back

Google Maps does not have

The alternative route

Planned.

 

At the roundabout,

The exits diverged into three.

And I,

I took the one less travelled by.

 

The motorway,

Recesses of empty road

Loneliness, the comforting kind.

The open, unedited skies

Free.

    1. Can you tell I’ve been with Google Maps far too often… (btw you can mute the sound, totally recommend doing that)

      Always an honor to have you read my stuff, love you sister!

      1. Ah yes people do that too, but I usually just prefer to stick to one route.. plus Kuwait has a routine kind of traffic so I always knows which route would be more convenient at what time. Lol.
