Moving Forward (part II)

Standard

But every triumph seems to drive

its way back to you, even when

you’re on the other side of town

(where I left you).

 

At first,

I was driving forward

after every promotion, and I could

only see you in the rear view.

But once you become an afterthought:

“If only…you saw me now.

This could have happened earlier,

and I would’ve responded differently–”

 

I slam on the brakes.

I was wrong.

I’ve been going in reverse all this time.
