Red Light


Three little girls waiting at a corner,
one just old enough to worry.

Their mother pacing,
calling someone

anyone

with her cell phone.

“Red Light” added to Poems, Slightly Used.

In the Forum: a trumpet, not a sousaphone.

It remembers me to Munchs 'Three girls on a bridge'... Waiting for Nothing.

That’s good, because this seems like a painting or photograph to me.
