And the count is three and two

At a stoplight

checking the rearview mirror.

I see the young woman behind me

taking the brief respite from the road to apply lotion.

Hands to arms, back of the neck,

shoulders then cheeks and back to the arms

a simple, efficient use of time

but looking, from here, all the world

like a third base coach

telling the bus driver across the street

to steal home.
