there was a time…

there was a time when these were new –
you wouldn’t think a gas station
would be that exciting,
but it was to you

i see you there, along a row
of candy, trying to make a choice –
this place was a place
of wonder then, to you

now, i see a family pull in
the children do not look up
from their cell phones, except
to sneer at how old this place is
