Driving Lights

By Rick Williams

Headlights, quad
oh my god!
I hate those blinding things!

Who ordered four?
Did we need more
of the searing light they bring?

When they're behind
I often find
I'm blinded from the back.

They may see clearer
but they're in my mirror!
Now it's a rear attack!

Maybe I'm just too old
cataracts foretold
that gives sparkle to all the lights;

but it's getting to where
I should have sunglasses there
in my car when I'm driving at night!
