On the road

On the road
Here in KerouacLandia

Why at my advanced age am I back on the road?
What am I searching for?
Who am I searching for?

Out of my comfort zone
The challenge to discover my new found identity
As a performer of my own poetic narrative words
To be appreciated and recognised

Back on the road
In my twilight years

Inspired and written at the David Amram Jamming session on 13 October at the ‘Lowell celebrates Kerouac Festival’ in Lowell, MA
