Do you ever feel jealous of cars?
One tail light is all I would need,
except it would have to be invisible,
so no one would know that I'm on to them.
Stalkers would be unaware.
So would people who spy on me
and people making faces at me behind my back.
I would be one step ahead of muggers,
as they wait for the right moment to make their move.
I'd be able to spot someone walking far behind me,
someone I know but would rather avoid.
I could hide from my hellish boss,
or from my ex, who never stops calling me.
Oh, the advantages!
Now that's damage control.
I might see something I would rather not see,
but years from now,
I would be grateful for having seen it.
And who is she cheating with?
My best friend?
One bright light in just the right place
