he wandered off to providence
to see if he could hear
the sound of his own breathing
as the sole one in his ear

a backpack and a walking stick
his phone left in the truck
he hiked on with a purpose
and to get himself unstuck

and yes that place was beautiful
and true he did explore it
but providence was always there
if he'd just

reached out for it
