on the road

Five unplanned points of contact,
a chain of calls
and still i stayed on the road

Swerving slightly, sure
between friends and familiars
cars and trucks

It's dangerous to have so much momentum maybe
to move too fast
to say goodbye and switch lanes

But it feels good
I am maximized
friend to many, keeper of appointments.
