desireway
 n.— «Someone told me a while back about desireways, a term coined by a landscaper way back when. Pathways are paved, say, through a campus park, usually forming square shapes in the land like regular roads, meant to bring you cleanly from one place to another. But students in this park may tread a new route, a short cut perhaps, across from one path to another (a desireway.) And more and more students walk this path, because it is faster, though unintended.» —“fuck the world (side a)” by k. piccolo (cycles) Comrade has to wonder: is it ever worth the effort? (Medfield, Mass.) Jan. 24, 2005.
