Two Dirt Roads
Jacqueline Jules

The pavement abruptly ended
at two dirt roads
winding off beneath blue skies,
dotted with feathery clouds
in question mark shapes.

Both choices too narrow
with too many ruts and stones.
Yet one had a trace more sunlight
swirling in the dust.

Closing my eyes, I hit the gas,
knowing I’d be a pillar of salt
if I looked back.
