around the curve

in the stillness of the night
in a Colorado desert
high on a plateau that promised
absolutely nothing
i stood, awash in moonbeams,
wondering about that curve
in a silent empty road

from where i stood
there was no telling
where it went
or what it led to
the possibilities endless
one could imagine anything
beyond the eye’s encompassing

curiosity killed the cat, they say
but i say curiosity’s a good thing
when the landscape of life is barren,
void of all but stones and scrub,
how can one go on
without wanting to know
what lies around the curve?
