An Extra Ordinary Trip Re-visited.

Updated on January 25, 2010

An Extra Ordinary trip Revisited.

Back seat dreams
fill her contemplative mind
as lives go by in a blur.

She sees the world as
a kaleidoscope of poetry,
the stubby old man hobbling
down fifth avenue, a troll,
the little girl on the corner
with an oversize lollipop
a fairy, with a magic wand.

She wishes that the wand
would make her

drive less bland.


Each window she passes

is a peephole denied

a glimpse into worlds

she'll never know.

A cute guy on a Schwinn
becomes her charming Prince

at a crossing marked with X's
at the tail end of a long train,

and in her imaginary world
she's kissing him.

But then the tracks

are crossed, and the

rumble steel skin of its rails

leave him far behind
bringing her back

to the drab

of streets she

knows too well.

But soon enough

she is home,
in old familiar rooms
encasing her

in a secured box,
yet her mind

escapes from

their familiarity
every once in a while,
when she composes a poem.
