the median

the sun
dusts the horizon
pink, gold, lavender

a single star
lingers uncertain
whether to stay

the moon
slips
below the horizon

taillights stay
firmly on the right side
of the road

I sleep
in the middle
of our queen sized bed

    For reasons unknown, I want the narrator to cross the median. Get out of that lonely place, even if it’s into oncoming traffic. This provoked my thoughts.

    I like that image of a lingering star, pondering possibilities and pointing us to our own star-like qualities. Thanks.
