Another Pat On The Back

I’m almost three weeks late posting this…but please welcome my Prizm to the Quarter Million Mile Club!

It welcomed itself to the Club with corroded headlamp electrical wiring. A quick fix and we’re back in business.

300k here we come, only 42k to go now!

I chose to board even though
We agreed to meet at half past three.
Late again, I can imagine the excuses:
A broken heel or
Spilled coffee on the last clean blouse
Or…

I am on my way and you’re off wherever you are.
The outside crumbles into changing colors and
Blurring motion as the engine pulls the extraordinary
Weight of its burdened load.
Sometimes it’s easy to sleep with the
Jolting and the jerking, the
Clickclack-clickclacking.

What if I missed you?
I am on my way, regardless.
Catch up with me on the next train and
We’ll meet at the shop on the corner of Main and West Third.
I chose to go ahead and board.
We both knew I would.
