very farsighted

What would be the advantage
of seeing for very long distances?
The bus stopped in traffic twelve minutes away
is all I can conjure.

Mistakes like
choosing the wrong superpower
make you haughty with justification because
we can't live our lives
always feeling wrong.

Leaves brown and pooling at their trunk while
yours are still flaming red and gold.

Him just reaching for a towel from the shower while the bus passes his stop
with you on it.

Other things would change course
blaspheming your predictions:

Shark bite!
True love!
