DPF / Collins

For watching oneself barrel through life and wanting to choose to be the self who goes back for the book, from Picnic, Lightning.

from I Go Back to the House for a Book / by Billy Collins

another me that did not bother
to go back to the house for a book
heads out on his own,
rolls down the driveway,
and swings left toward town
