Pinnacle, Harman, WV

This year I have come to this place as I have before
but this time I used no written instructions.
I did not pore over a map and painstakingly
list each of the highways and their headings.
Yes I have been here enough times before to have memorized the way
But I have such a fear of being lost.

Being lost is what I, where I, need to be.
