Returns / Departures - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

I've noticed
in travels of my own,
that my returns
never seem
as long
or as arduous
as my departures—

What we might call
a strange inequality in traveling—
in coming and in going—

And to my delight—
while riding
and flying
in taxis
and in planes—
I've learned from those
around me
that most of us feel
the same way—
that our
returns
are easier
than our
departures
