That One Left Turn

But what about

The left turn

The expected unexpected.

The reason you have reasons

To not take a chance.


Google maps chose the route

But I recognized it

As my father’s route

The man who loves

Control of control.


Yet, for me

It is the unfamiliar path

The path I never want

For want of a right turn

Instead of

Left.


He hates the apps

The ones that turn those that don’t know

Down an unknown

Now too known


Right

Left turn

Wrong choices litter each roadside.

The soft and silent. The violent.

The immediate and the imminent.


The return trip from the hospital

Isn’t the left turn

It’s the right

Turn

Easy

Easier

With the knowing


But what’s left

For me to choose

Except

That one

Left turn


Isn't the one you avoided

It's the turn you don't

See,

The only turn that's

Left.
