Elsewheres And Might Have Beens
Sometimes the safest questions to ask ourselves
are about other times, other places, and other people.
It is so much more pleasant to guess what might have been,
how things might have felt, what people might have wished for,
and what might have lain ahead along unspotlighted
corridors of time.
Rather than dwell where we are, with ourselves,
Feeling far less happy to not know the answers.
