When the World Keeps Spinning

It’s funny how my world stopped turning at that red light;

the red light that would bring me to your house with one left turn.


I once parked the car by your front yard,

in a moment of goodbye


You were already long gone.


It’s funny how certain street names

hung heavy with meaning.


Now, if I drive past your block,

and I recall those streets,

I’m just driving,

and they are just words.
