Until the Red Light Changes

stopped at a red light

I navigate random thoughts

such as the politics of things uncertain

occupation

passions

love

~

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

~
