A Romantic Song and What Went Wrong

His parents’ heydays
were the late 30’s and 40’s —
a romantic song and
what went wrong.
He wondered about
their worlds.
He traveled the
same nostalgic roads,
the back roads,
here and there,
the abandoned
gas stations, converted
into pubs, the road
houses resurrected,
the Glenn Miller and
Tommy Dorsey bands.
The sadness gripped
his heart as he listened
to a romantic song
and wondered what
went wrong.
