Since when?

Since when?
You asked me the other day
and I wanted to know,
more specifically, about when.

I want when to be a time and place
as real as the table where we are sitting
talking about changes-
changes I cannot and do not
want to make.

And then we, you and I,
could find a way to get back.

It would be so easy-
we could get into a car and drive to when.
When life was not complicated.
When time was not short.
When we were young and beautiful.

So, since when? That is when.
