Monterey tail lights

brown eyes in the rear view

wet streams down her cheek

shaking hand shifts into gear

and she starts to pull away

more brown eyes in the rear view

wet streams down her cheek

then I can’t see them anymore—

only her Monterey tail lights


Monterey tail lights

blinking out goodbye

Monterey tail lights

red like my blue eyes

Monterey tail lights

signal and turn


her Monterey tail lights

are gone
