"Youth has its drawbacks -- because we don't see enough of the world to know enough about ourselves when we're young. There's something to be said for innocence and optimism." ~ Steve Wagenseller


here I sit,
watching
the cars go by.
waiting
for elusive #52,
the singleton of the hour.

it pains me to say
that it pains me to see
the cars go by.
movement
has never been
so metaphorical.
those people
driving those cars
have direction,
speed,
a destination.

they're passing me by.

i hate to say
that if a
friend
were to pass by,
i would look down
and whisper,
"please pass in a blur,"
so that,
though the
pain
wouldn't leave me,

no one would see it.
