Prescription for wanderlust

We cannot fly across the world
or even go on a road trip

but we can soak our curiosity
by wandering alone
through a neighbourhood
we’ve never been.

Like the time you looked
at your skin under a microscope
in high school,
the world around you
is humming with mystery.

Put on your mask
and backpack around your city.

Expect to see extraordinary things
and watch with delight
as the familiar dissolves
into a million details
suddenly vying
for your attention.
