All the cars sit in a line,

Idle, angry, impatient,

And my mind is going-

As fast as it can, enchanted,

Happy, to be thinking of you

A car honks

And my heart beats twice per second-

As it remembers your voice,

Your sweet voice

With music notes binding, locking my ears

I can never hear anything but your singing

Your laugh, like water floating

Someone inches up

My mind moves forward-

Recalling your twinkling eyes,

So blue, so clear

Like Mexico waters,

Crinkling in delight,

Glistening from hard chuckling

A light somewhere turns green

The other lane is creeping

Passing my car, hands pressed against the horn

And there’s no more traffic-

I’m moving on.


The End
