Returns / Departures - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

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

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

And to my delight,
while riding
and flying
in taxis
and planes—
in asking those around me—
I’ve learned that
most of us
the same way—
that our
are easier
than our
