Lost


by Sergio Ortiz



There is no simple way

of getting misplaced

in the city: too many signs,

landmarks, and directions.

I'd run, no walk, to be lost

then found in miniscule

discrepancies,

so minor strangers turn

their heads and ignore

my mismatched shoes.


Ortiz has a B.A. in English literature from Inter-American University, and a M.A. in philosophy from World University. His poems have been published, or are forthcoming in: The Acento Review, Poesia, The Driftwood Review, Words-Myth, The Taj Mahal Review, and many other journals and anthologies. His chapbook, At the Tail End of Dusk (2009), was published by Flutter Press.
