Street Lights

Street Lights

I don’t let myself drive past dark
The black sky
Dozing off through passing lights.

    If my eyes close
I fear
    I’ll let them be.

I used to let go of the wheel,
Waiting until the last second
    To dodge a street light
        And pull myself back to the road.

    It would be so simple
    Let go
Look away
        Let go.
