Why Some People Never Arrive


Suddenly, yearning is my favorite word.

I wanted to be a rock star my entire life.

I am sixty-six years old;  I am pretty sure

it is not going to happen


People like to drive themselves

Self-driving cars will never be universally loved

I am driven to places; many people are driven and

those of us who never arrive


will always recognize the one that got there.

We will stretch and stand on our toes

for a glimpse of the stuff we have imagined.
