Clogging Roads

Our daily trips could be mistaken

for outings.

our daily drives could be mistaken

for the things we used to laugh at others for.

Old people do that, you know…

clog up the roads with their little slow cars,

when younger people have more important things to do.

Our daily trips are noticed by younger neighbours

who watch us drive out every morning in the rush hour

and wonder why we couldn’t wait until later,

when they won’t need the roads

to get to their important places of work.

When we arrive at our destination

the same place every day

and meet other old people who have clogged the roads

from their homes

Our conversations always start the same way

How beautiful the signs of spring, how warm the sun,

and not the radiotherapy

that is the reason for our clogging of the roads.
