POEM: Escape Velocity

The need for new experience burns brightly

gummed into these walls daily and nightly.

I think back to my great escapes

first road-trip blown interstate —

like a loose leaf.

Thrilled like a thief

cutting open his first safe, hoping for something good,

but okay if it’s just a cheap bauble of simple wood.
