No Shelf Life

Discerning the rigamaroll

from what feels right

has become

so easy

because this

limousine has a driver


the passenger is


looking out the window.

The driver

knows exactly where to go

and the passenger

just calmly breathes

and peacefully looks out the window

enjoying the ride.


has no







Choke me if I tell you to,

I like it

because I choose it.

The past

has no shelf life.

    I’m intrigued by that last couplet. I think that for some, the shelf life of the past is often so long that it stops one from moving forward. I like how, in this case, it seems that the person has decided to stamp a more definitive ending to the past. A powerful sentiment.
