Greatest Show on the Road

brake lights ahead
too fast truck
clambers up the trunk
airborne tires clawing at the sky
screaming, agonizing, a twisting cat of nine lives
grass, weeds, bits of a tree sticking
out of the chrome and trim
landing on its feet again
cars drive on

Drove over to Sarasota yesterday to revel in 
the Ringling Museum of Art.
David gladly posed.
The drive home was the REAL exhibit.
Watched with horror from the other lane.
Stayed close to home today for obvious reasons.
