yellow light

i remember when he was young

he held my finger, so tight

sweaty, clammy, baby grasp.

as I watched him walk into the

big brick building-

today, I kept myself from

exploring this reality

and drove away.


green light,

coffee, go.



I carry her weight

as she lightened mine

forceful feet


her clammy fists




red light,

cold, stop.


i remember-

do not grow


i keep you in my pocket


grow on my time

they grin today.


yellow light,
