Alleyways (excerpt from upcoming poetry collection)

shortcuts in my life i seem to pick them blindly and for no reason at all

shortcuts in my life 

i seem to pick them blindly

and for no reason at all 

as the light shines rather brightly 

over where the public roams. 

i see shadows prancing from the corner of my eyes but they don’t scare me

it’s all in my mind

so i paint the alley in color 

and make my way,

i chose the path im on anyways.

Excerpt from Wonderlust & City Dust: A Poetry Collection by Xavier Alexis available October 21st, 2020.
