With New York City in the rear-view mirror,
I say, “Lord, You saved our souls, amen.”
She laughs and says to me, “Hold on, dear,
don’t celebrate having bailed again.

“What paradise will we chance upon,
crawling through Jersey on I-95?”
I grin back and say, “I’ve heard that song.
Turn up the volume and let’s harmonize:”

It’s the great American story
of rebirth and regret.
If a lesson’s learned, it’s one we soon forget.
So in the end, we’re just sorry.
(Sorry. We’re sorry.)
