Winter Advisory

I am a car,

just trying to get

from point a

to point b

on slick, snow

covered roads.

I’m just trying

to get a grip

and keep control

of my life

but I am

slipping and

sliding downhill

faster and faster.

I know that

pretty soon here

I am going to crash

and it is not

going to be pretty.

It’s going to

cost me far more

than a stupid mailbox.

I am putting

everything I’ve got

into getting to

my destination,

but my gut tells me

that I’ll never make

it there alive
