white cars

Sometimes, fear is a white car.

Sometimes, fear blinds you with headlights.

Sometimes, fear comes to a halt one inch before your knees.

Sometimes, fear chases you through residential roads at night:

The bumps, the willow trees, the locked-up gates.

Sometimes, fear has its engines fade

into the breaking dawn.

 

And sometimes, when the sun lights up

The bumps, the willow trees, the locked-up gates,

You find that you’re turning your head.

There are too many white cars out there.
