A Chance

A road ran through it–
that lake, lapping wherever 
its form flows
‘tween waving winter cattails
ready to grow anew

A lake lapped onto it–
that black-topped road,
pitted with non-use
paving its way, from black
to blue of lake and sky, or back to black, cracked age

A choice changed within it–
that decision weighed in black 
& blue; turn back to the old & 
usual, or wade into the unknown: 
a line, a choice, a chance
