Many people say; “I would not go back
to a time in the past and do it over
I’m so together now. So cool now.
I don’t need to go back.”
I have multiple times,
I would go back to.
Ten years old or so…
playing sandlot baseball
football in the street,
foursquare, talking for ever
…and ever under a street light.
coming in to see my mother
on the phone that had a six foot cord.
or dad watching television
we all enjoyed the same shows
later mom would bring us a plate
of peanut butter fudge she had made!
Summer was an eternity.
Each day waking up
headed down the block.
Without a care in the world.
