G67 – A Third Way

on a straight path to a forked road
that leads nowhere, Robert Frost, who needs roads?

to train
your hand-raised
away from the fence

a third way has not yet
been opened
because nobody can find it

the search goes after oral and vaginal
a third way is mutual
is a highway away from anyway toward way to
get someone else to write your poems

tenth gate, a third eye seeing
attempts to reconcile those
tricky two-way streets & avenues of love
balances, confuses, enlightens

a third way is a cross street
is a path to hell paved with
a fourth dimension, a fifth of scotch,
and a path of least resistance

the poetics of constraint
is either lucky or unlucky
is made out of exhaustion
threads through the this and
that may not be identical to a third space

a third way is not, unfortunately, a three way
is a cross street, pissed
with the vinegar of its own misdirection,
vexed by i dunno indecision,
indigo indyvision, gottago imprecision
and hot salted idaho impotatos
or perhaps that's “idaho impetagos”

a third way is
I dunno
is not to be confused with a third eye
