some days,
the clouds roll in darker than usual and
the peregrinations come to an end
the team loses and
the lot is full
they're all out of chocolate chip bagels and
schools reopen their doors
your gas tank points to empty and
the ref lets it slide

but sometimes,
the rays peak through and
you book another trip
comeback year is better than last and
a ford pulls out
apple cinnamon bagels are pretty darn good too and
snow means a break
there's a station to your left and
for once the other player gets the short end of the stick
