Stopgap

By Katje Kaase


The light turned red

Free falling in the lane

As the lazy beam

Turned inward

And created a scene

A field of grain


Stubby stalks

Dressed in orange

Then scarlet

Sunset surrender

From seepage

In the brain


Green glowing globe

Pushed her forward

But for a moment...

Between red and green

Her world was sane
