RIDING AROUND: THEN AND NOW
AS A LITTLE MAN of five or eight,
I could lay on my back
across the sticky, vinyl seat of the station wagon
and watch an upside down world race by;
or simply stare at the fabric ceiling
of the old Ford.
AS A BIG MAN now,
I can still view the upside down world,
yet failing to understand,
for I no longer am able to lay on my back across the back seat
– too big to fit –
I simply prefer to stare at the ceiling.
