The Great Gatsby, Revisited as Audiobook

At the kitchen counter

chopping vegetables

doing dishes

and looking out at the old avocado farm

across the canyon


in the car

driving up and down

Pacific Coast Highway

to appointments


and the store

I revisited

the careless people

the truthful

the hopeful

and the jaded

the glittering parties

the end of summer

and the rain

the green light at the end of the dock


boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
