be willing

the six-hour drive
is easier every time

i’ve become adept
at snack-based
stay-awake strategies

my foot has
plenty of
stamina for the
gas pedal
on those
Grapevine inclines

makes me think
i might be ready
to extend the

aim my car
at farther-away

make all those
road trip visions
a reality

so much
is possible

i need only
be willing.
