Mild-Mannered Epiphanies While Driving on E. Camelback Rd.

i thought i’d make a list
of all the things
i wanted
a piano
and a new car
(something sporty)
and i thought about how
we always want
what we don’t yet have until
we have it, then
it’s something else filling
that list. and
as i drove past car dealerships
and palm trees in
the 70 degree weather of
an Arizona February day
i thought
this is it. this is what i always wanted
right here
and i’m already thinking of
the next thing. amazing, isn’t it?
i thought as
i laughed at myself
shook my head
behind blue sunglasses
then got into the
left lane for
a legal u-turn.
