Coming Home

Photograph by Jose Padua
When the policeman tells me
to pull over to the curb
because the woman
with the pearly white
smile just told him
that I nearly ran
someone over when
I’m simply waiting there
while another woman
pushing her grocery cart
walks past me is
when I remember
how hard it can
be sometimes just
to get home.
