arriving

i couldn’t help but notice 
carrying my baggage,
what five weeks of traveling looked like
all neatly folded just to be tossed
on a giant conveyor belt
shoved alongside everyone else’s baggage
traveling who knows how long
from who knows where

i couldn’t help but notice
the two signs overhead
departing
arriving

people packed alongside each other
pushing their way through
zoned out
tuned out
caught up in the scramble
hurrying
hurrying
hurrying
rushing from one point to the next
departing
arriving

i couldn’t help but wonder
“don’t they get it”
with all this baggage they hold
with all this scrambling
with all this rushing
missing it
missing it
missing it
longing for something that was already taking place
departing
arriving

it’s all the same
no matter where you go
or where you think you’re going
or where you have been

you are departing
you are arriving
