Until the Red Light Changes

stopped at a red light

I navigate random thoughts

such as the politics of things uncertain





when the red light changes

an occupation will come and one will go


a life will gain new meaning worth waiting for

while inattentive commuters continue to wait


a heart burdened will sigh and breathe for the first time

a heart will stop

a heart will fall in love


at the red light vaporous thoughts linger

in the glow of brake lights


I suppose all drivers eventually stop

and pause – to think

about prolonged uncertainties

and momentary certainties

until the red light changes
