Window Shopping

I can almost taste it
I can almost feel it
I can almost see it
I can almost hear it
I can almost smell it
The lands, the cities, the people
The fax machine, the clients,
The muscle car, the brick House
The dream job, the white-collar life
The full-bloomed trees, the blue skies
The sweet air, the mowed, healthy lawn
The friendly neighbors
Where everybody knows my name
Like “Cheers,”
Not notoriously
I can see the cycle
Like the washing machine
Ever turning
Until I’ve lived it
Traveled it
Did it
Said it
Am It

Colin, Ben

Thanks poets. I'm from the outside looking in, wanting to be a part of that world/life I never knew.
