CARMA
(10/28/19)


my car
was totaled

for the
second time
in three years

a young man
making
the same mistake
as this old man
made
back then

a blind
left hand turn
being
a crap shoot
for everyone

the only
difference
today

was that
he
drove away

while I
awaited
a wrecker

knowing
just a bit
better
how the woman
that I hit
must've felt

a perfectly
good vehicle

a perfectly
good day

wasted

and tomorrow's
to do list
expanded beyond
comprehension
