I Stopped For Green

There I sat,

waiting for the light,

absorbed in me.

Oh the thoughts,

the uninvited guests

to my morbid

feast, the unwelcome

sons of bitches that

have spoiled so

many parties I’ve

tried to throw,

the bullies of

my soul. I looked

up and realized

the light had

gone to yellow.

That means I

stopped for and

sat through the

green. Silly me.

I drove off smiling,

chuckling, then laughed out

loud. I wonder

how many times I’ve

done that in my life.

Silly me.
