burdened by traffic
it’s not so much that i’m trying to
dispel the memory of him than i am
trying to impress the reality of us—
a long potholed road we’ve travelled
and the exits have changed toward
our final destination but i hope
you recognize the scenery beyond
the window still is familiar and signals
this way home.
