So I told him.
Slow the car down please love
The first jacarandas are in bloom
The winter has been cruel
Slow down.

Witness the rebirth of God’s grandeur
But my promised is godless
Depthless, a tin
He struck the gas with might
A Mercedes in sight
I sighed…
Rolled my eyes
In the back of my mind I saw
a sign boldly signed

Perhaps he’s rushing to a place
Where the trees are evergreen.
