One Headlight

To All Us Poets Out There Who Know What Its Like...

I drive alone tonight
my eyes flutter away
I want to sleep, but must keep going...
I pass a sign, "Slow down, right turn" it quips,
I dismiss it...
lights flash over me
washing me in darkness...then light
I see a diner, the home-style kind you love to stay in...
the lights are out so I keep going,
no obvious direction...
but I keep going anyway...
