The pastor’s wife reports to traffic school

January 13, 2013

We watch cars crash,
bodies crush,
drunks stagger,
adolescents weep,

we believe:
no matter how innocent
we think we are,
how good our intentions,
there’s no re-crossing
those double
yellow lines.
              No short cuts.
          Rock: clay: dust.
