...Drive Through...

Updated on October 24, 2012

That haunted, exhausted

look

so familiar

yet so foreign

to her life

as it is now

So much a part

of who she has

turned out to be.

On rainy days

She is even more

lethargic

even more pressed

for vitality

in a way that bleeds

and drains her.

An old lady looks over at her

at the drive through

She knows one day

it will be her, looking over

all the mis-spent gifts

all the wonderings

of connections

and unanswered questions

just being asked

at the drive through.
