left wondering

how this sizable and colorful bra

ended up in the bag of children’s dress-up clothes

just sitting there quietly

mixed amongst

the mermaid, the dragon, and the cowboy gear

and who it might belong to.

all i know for sure is that

there is a story in here somewhere. 

“i have never been bored an hour in my life.

i get up every morning wondering what new strange glamorous thing is going to happen

and it happens at fairly regular intervals.

“there is a time for departure

even when there is no certain place to go.”

– tennessee williams

when i stop at the light on this corner

 what i see

is

always different

yet

always the same

this is the stop 

where you get on the bus

and

go straight to the airport

i’ve seen people

hugging

crying

laughing

talking

celebrating

calling

texting

alone 

together

worried

whispering

excited

wondering

so many different goodbyes

and

i sometimes wonder

what they say to each other

just before

one steps 

onto that bus

and

one is left  behind

on the sidewalk

they all have a story and a reason 

maybe to return to somewhere or someone

maybe for an adventure

maybe to see the world

maybe to leave a bad situation behind

maybe to meet someone for the first time

maybe to get better

maybe to help someone

maybe to realize a dream

maybe they’re not yet sure

but there is one thing that is certain

someone is leaving

and

someone is coming.
