Here and There

Wherever I go, 
I wonder about the likelihood of you being there.
The chance is slim, but the dream continues.
Not the same locations,
not the same time.
Like the possibility of seeing 
another planet full of life,
theoretically yes, but practically no.
Remember when we were young, 
we criticized the plot of a movie or a book.
"How come she didn't do that? 
That's so easy, so obvious.
That would have solved the problem."
As one grows older, one realizes that 
one just can't do the easy and the obvious.
Blame my own indolence--
I am a sloth, I admit.
Blame the civilization,
complicating natural interactions.
