Straying into relevance

It will be hard
So we are taught
To keep within
The narrow way
Online threads
Would prove the point
Straying here
And straying there
Rarely keeping
On the track
But just imagine
If you can
Writing somewhere
Else because
You choose to go
A different way
Then finding what
You’ve done is stray
Back into
That narrow way.

I can always copy stuff from here and take it up in journal if it strays into relevance.

What kind of sentence is that? Well, one I found I’d written earlier this morning! And it set me thinking. Somehow the concept of straying into relevance rather than away from it has a certain appeal.
