That good ole 5 o’clock cloud almost won.
Hypnotized by the end of tedious work,
I drove the familiar 15 minute stretch home.
The sunset whispered relaxation through the windshield,
as did the pop hits through the radio.
It is unfortunate though that ghosts of caution, exhaustion, anxiety, and doubt
still crept through the cracks of my dome…
all the while I busted through that red light by the hospital.
Distraction is dangerous,
Yep… 5 o’clock could have had a killer victory today.
