A sizable 401k
Savings, a Roth,
Substantial equity in a home
Even a secret stash of gold and silver
For the unthinkable days

A decade ago 
With this money 
I’d have boarded the next flight 
For Japan, China, Europe.
I’d resign. 
And I’d laugh and be free.
Or was that always her?
And did I lose my adventure 
with Inverse proportion to my power?

Why is there a law of work
and a savior that
forbids care?
