Two exits up ahead.
One to the left could go west,
One to the right could go east,
I could drive straight past
Continuing down the predictable path.

We had room just the right size for two people
Who had been in love for longer than we
Could remember. There was heat.
The window faced the east.

Written when we use to get paychecks
