OBJECTS IN THE MIRROR
ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR
I saw that notice as
I was sitting in the passenger seat.
I wasn’t driving.
I wasn’t in control.
I was just sitting there,
minding my own business,
mind in neutral,
along for the ride.
It reminded me of that movie
where the dinosaur shows up in the mirror,
the camera goes out of focus
and then sharpens on that warning,
and moments later,
the monster attacks the car.

And that reminded me of
my childhood and life:
I just happened
to glance back,
not suspecting what could happen
or what had already happened.
Suddenly the focus shifted
from where I am,
right here and now,
and the monster is attacking
and I am no longer driving
and I am no longer in control –
just along for the ride.

The events are right on my back,
bearing down on me
in hot pursuit
and I can not shake them.
I thought that they were
safely left behind,
lost in the distant past,
never to be seen or felt again.
But here they are –
CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR
closer – than I’d have believed,
much, much closer
than I can ever escape.
