Century Twenty One
We are more than our footprints,
kneaded down in
We are not the trails we have
We are not the road signs
We are personalities
floating inside a
where big hands
We stop and we stare,
waiting to smash
the hard drives
sat navs and
the lines on old-fashioned road maps.
Ellie Sparks, 22, Southern England
