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.
