Sonnet #80

Let's all go on a hero's journey: Map it out

in advance, where your mentor will be
Where will you face the inner demon's pout
and whistle? When do you expect all to be
lost? Plan for a scenic location, a vacation
on a mountainside, a long walk up unburdening
all the baggage along the path, placations
symbolically selected, something old, something
new, something borrowed, a sky so blue
Look up into the mirror of the self, that deep,
deep blue, and picture all the universal truths
emanating from all the galaxies so vast that creep
Around the unbelievably empty everything
Upon arrival, tip the waiter, Go to yelp for reviewing
