Drive-by twilight
Clouds at night
Star bright star dim
Frozen between there and then
Excitement that something will happen
Anticipation initiated
Ever-waiting everlasting fever
A cure with no illness
Nothing ever happens
The journey is better than the destination
Getting there is all the fun
The waiting is the easiest part
That feeling is what we remember
Not the day
Not the event
Not the top of the mountain
But the steps leading up to it
Half the roller coaster ride
Is the chain drive suspending the senses
Half the evening
Is the pictures of what you’re doing
Rather than doing things
Capturing them in images
Instead of memories
A picture of an open mouth
Instead of hearing the laughter
When you close your eyes
