an inner GPS

to know where we are

much of who we are
is based upon knowing where we are,
in space,
in time,
in relationship to the other,
a near constant checking of inner ear and outer reality,

it is as if we need an inner GPS
to make sure we know how and where to walk,
to know where others are coming from,
and where they hope they’re going,

I fear the robber, maybe just outside,
who can steal my sense of where I am in space and time,
and even prevent my knowing it’s gone.
