Wild-mint

Wild-mint, her feet bare, but on she wanders

Nine days since journeying with Julie Ro

Though now they’ve parted company

As, Wild, she needed to travel a rising road

Red pea gravel with two steps forward

One step back, all while singing, how

Unlucky can one be, drawing lines

On a mud covered map in a place

Far from home, Wild-mint remembers a

Name, a place her only aunt talked about

Once, another place she once called home

Many years ago in another lifetime

But here now, Wild-mint walks her

Namesake route, Wild-mint Road..
