Less of a fork, more like a maze

Cul de sac, u-turn, or roundabout route

Chris-crossing cities, wandering wild

A rambling nose for amuse-bouches and side dishes

A taste for sharp turns, an eye for live mains

Which road is not travelled when most have been tried?

Still working through the start menu, rebooting worn shoes

Still with a pulse and nothing to lose.

  1. A one-line poem in itself:

    Still with a pulse and nothing to lose.

    1. It might become my new payoff line! Thank you, Angela 😊

    I like the take on the prompt for the day. Weaved wonderfully.

    1. Kritika, Thank you. I seem to have reached a point where I am almost doubling back on myself…but hopefully not a second childhood!

      1. Kritika says:

        It happens?
        My pleasure 🙂

  3. Chado says:

    Nice wordplay !

    Pardon my French but is it not “égalité” ?

    1. Thank you! It’s been unremarked on for a few years now… very grateful!
