POEM: San Fernando

remember that trip to the Valley
and how we couldn’t wait to get there
and how excited we were
how the mountain rose
above the interstate and the way
you took my hand
just out of excitement
we were young then
with the sun and
the palms and the mountains
I want to go again
sometimes I think we’re still going
and we just haven’t gotten there yet
