THE RED BRICK ROAD

Where does the Red Brick Road go to?
The one in the Munchkin village in the 1939
movie that swirls
in sinister sympathy with its better known
yellow sister – where does it go?

Back to the small town Kansas of the mind?
Had Dorothy followed that
would she have been as friendless as the beautiful boys
strung up on wire fences
and bleeding in alleyways?
Streets of hisses and accusatory stares?
