commuting

For a while,
my long commute
felt like a sentence

Then I found musicals,
and found myself
anticipating
my daily
drive

Later still,
my sister recommended
podcasts, so that
I shared the road
with The Dig,
Chapo Traphouse,
Katie Halper,
and any episode
of anything
featuring
Mark Blyth

Recently,
English and all
its concealed
assumptions
started to feel
like a cage,
so I began
wieder Deutsch
zu lernen

Still,
one of my very
favorite things to
do while driving
is talk with my
sister, Rache;
as we talk,
my car encompasses
the whole world
we share

In all these ways,
by all these means,
I have commuted
my commute
from a sentence
to a celebration
