Where the road leads…

May 20, 2016 marks the beginning of a new chapter –
This was the road out of town on that Friday afternoon.

.
I’m still not sure what my next adventure looks like, but sometimes, you just have to make the leap and hope to land on your feet… um, right?

As scary as it is, I know that it is time to move on.
“To see the change, you have to be the change.”
(Or… something like that)

.

Hang on!
After all, life is a Vagarious Voyage…

Sun/Moon Roof

“I was the kind of young that thrilled you

and also young enough to be thrilled.”

There is a sunroof in your new truck,

you show me like a six-year old with his favorite GI Joe.

.

Are you thinking about the future

long yellow lines on black asphalt and sunny days and 80 miles per hour?

 .

Or, are you hoping that I am remembering when

we parked on the side of a dark highway

.

not too far out of town, really,

close enough that headlights spied on us every now and then

.

didn’t we look at the stars through the roof?

maybe I’m remembering it wrong. maybe I was looking through the windshield of that old truck.

.

I know for sure that it was warm – 

there were so many, many stars! silver glitter dumped into that black, black blue

.

I was the kind of young that thrilled you

and also young enough to be thrilled.

.

I didn’t have anything to hide

from you, but I didn’t want any of those headlights to see me

 .

and now, headlights wouldn’t bother me so much,

but I know more about the things you obscure.

I also keep my tongue pressed against my teeth

while you show off the rest of the new rig – taillights will be the last thing I see.
