Driving to OC

Driving to OC

Driving to Ocean City to
Visit my parents, I
Remember each turn
Of the road, looking
For the sub shop sign,
Roadside custard, gas
Station, bridge, liquor
Store. Each mile is
Backwards, living and
Reading and playing
There every summer,
Four till fourteen.

Afterwards I
Speed back to
Baltimore, rocket
Into work, cook dinner,
Go out with friends,
Driving home I think
Through the next week,
Trying on my life again,
Brushing off the sand.
