“You are not the same people who left that station…”

Commuters riding the New York New Haven line during evening rush hour.

I contemplate another change;
one that will amuse everyone who knows me
for a little while,
but then will come the consternation.
People don’t like it if you get too slippery.
I already have a reputation for drastic change.
That is one of the things I plan to alter.
Not yet, though,
for I am the me
of the moment—
unacquainted as yet
with the steadier me
of yet to be.

—Don Whittington
