Oedipus

March 1, 2005

This poem first appeared in the Spring 2005 issue of The Muse Apprentice Guild and was featured in Softblow Poetry Journal in 2006.

Oedipus

A road is a false exit,
an annex of a Freudian building.
A building is a dream exterior,
a life similarly lit.

These, secret to the door —
the road not dividing or joining,
the building not awake, awakeable —
are your continuous floor.

Yet, as if from conscious theft,
you will run out of one, into one.
You no longer risk recognizing
an ordeal that has never left.
