Faith

I turn the lamp off by my bedside
and the dark closes immediate
complete.
But I know in seconds I
will see again.
Without any light at all.

Rental Car

My rental car has no key.
It starts with a push button.
Like George Jetson. Like space.
Like Hal 9000.
But it can’t make coffee.
The future isn’t bright.
Yet.
