"Round and Round"

Can you see me 
there on the left
in the white sailor cap?

I'm just back
from traveling the globe
on a navy frigate

Why would I care
about watching
three cars go round 
a miniscule 
dirt track

when I have moved in
much bigger circles?

Yes, I suppose the racetrack would seem quite trivial to a WWII vet.
Or maybe a place to go and forget.

I'm not convinced
that we saw
what we think we saw,
when all I can remember is
the blur of the moment, and
you spilling soda on my pants
in a moment of victory.
