Day 31: Upon seeing the sign: No Purpose. No Entry.

What shall I say 
when the gatekeeper asks
to account 
for my presence?
Should  I say I came to 
serve or be served
or observe
the state of things
of confusing service and 
 When you travel this far
only to find you've
forgotten your purpose
or you no longer want it,
will it make sense to return
or proceed;
and this guard--
what standard does he keep
to say a purpose is valid,
will he accept silence?
Surely, there is joy
even for a fleeting second
to stay at the door,
between aiming and aimless.
