Lights on


Getting it down

Staring at the stop sign
the clock set to the right time
the light should be on green to go
but
it’s Wednesday and we know that
it’s a neither here nor there day
and for some
it’s a bad hair day, a how did I
end up here day,
so
halfway through the week
I lay
waiting for the lights to change.
