NIGHT DRIVING ARTIST

Jersey barrier in the other lane,

Lit up magic, a wonder, not plain…

Averted eyes

In surprise,

He’d forgotten about his lane!

–Jonathan Caswell

WE JUST DRIVE PAST…

WE JUST DRIVE PAST…!

Missing those wonderful summers,

Of strolling around the woods…

Mosquitoes in air meet us there

And shortly get the goods!

How often do we stop and examine

A roadside monument…

We drive rignt past with exhaust blast,

We came as quick as we went.

In stop-and-go traffic,

They’re grinding, repaving roads…

Details of a “Jersey Barrier”

Interest me as traffic slows.
