drive by|

the sound of the car

driving by at 1:00 am

on a now quiet street

is a reminder

of all the things

I said I was going to do

but still haven’t done

some opportunites are gone

I mentally lay a single red rose

for each one

and bid it adieu

I say it’s okay to lower

the coffin

whille I watch what

never occurred

mostly without regret

be buried six feet under

so many opportunities will arrive

each morning

showing up on my front porch

like the monthly visit from

a pair of Jehovah’s Witnesses

with over eager smiles

and a pamphlet they try to leave me

hoping to convince me

to see their way

One thing is certain

I can always count on

endless opportunites

and impermanence
