Aesthetics of being a Road

(Hommage à Rilke)

It is long since you were a lane.
Now you leave off being a street
And don't become a highway yet.
You are cautious
But cautiously exploring what it might be
To be wider than you were before
And go further, and be less familiar with trees.

                                               Kenneth Koch
