TWO BY TWO ABREAST
(11/14/18)


I pull
along side
the SUV
in the right
lane

just as
two cars
traveling
the opposite
direction
also align

with each
other

with us

at 6
in the morning

no other
vehicles
in sight

either ahead

or behind

what are
the odds
that we would
all be in
the same
place

at the
same time?

1 in 1
of course

100%

since it
just happened

still
it seems
very strange
as we quickly pass
each other
by

all
spreading
apart

as our journeys
return
to isolation

in the
predawn
distance
