After the party
The die-hards among us
Accidentally rendezvoused at the gas station mini market
We stood there between our cars
In the yellow half-light, talking
About girls and horsepower and wondering
At the momentous consequences of seemingly trivial decisions
I mean if I hadn’t
Gotten into my car and driven away
I’d still be standing there today

Paul Charles is doing his best to make his few remaining days count forever.

  1. I can’t help but smile when I read this. Thanks, Paul, and thanks for the serious implications as well.
