All the paths never taken

(Inspired by Ralph Feinnes’ haunting performance in T.S Elliot’s The Four Quartets at the Harold Pinter Theatre, Saturday 27 November 2021)

All the doors never opened

Take route in our memories

Planting their coils

What if?

What then?

What might?

Ahead of us, the road whines and winds

The future made each slipping instant

The past now a fixed shadow.
