Taking my Wife to Work - A Poem

Danny P. Barbare

Taking My Wife to Work

It is dark, early in the morning.
In the Mercury, I'm taking my wife
to work because her car is in the
shop. I'm driving on a two lane
country road. I see a doe on the
right shoulder of the road. The doe
is facing the road. I tap on the break
and swerve a little to the left. The
doe turns around and leaps into
the night. I drive another mile or so
and drop my wife off at work. I tell
her to have a good day, as the
best thing about her goodbye is
her hello like the sunset spilling
across the autumn sky.
