X This

X marks,
check marks, tick marks;
recording our choices,
defining our identities
on forms.

X Marks the Spot

on the path of life
traveling forward always
humans locked in time
on a map of life laid out
few would dare look for the X

Thank you Sarah. “After all, I could be looking at the sign on a video!” However, if your life was laid out on a map where you could walk up to it and see your entire timeline along with that telltale “X” which showed you where you were on that timeline, would you do it? I know I wouldn’t.


Thank you Parker. I had in mind that 2020 is a census year, and we will all here in the United States be defining ourselves by the marks we put in those little boxes.
