Those side mirrors

that say

objects in the mirror

may be nearer than may appear

much like things in the distance

may be bigger obstacles

than when you first view them

the leaving of the woman

who does not want to be left

has not done with you yet

finding that job


deserving of you

developing a clear conscience

in all that you do

just to sleep at night

allowing yourself to just be

rather than the do

demanded by others around you

delicate balance

old enough to tie floppy shoelaces

young enough to take the wild ride

when opportunity knocks

all while looking forwards

making glances

in the side mirrors

so’s not to lose sight

where you were coming from
