“Anyone who says they haven’t run a red light”

Anyone who says they haven’t
run a red light for the possibility
of good sex
is either too young to drive
or smart enough to avoid
mixing pleasure with danger
even though it is the most
heady cocktail
next to booze or cigarettes

Either way,
they’re probably someone
I don’t know very well
because I have burned and ran
and turned on and off again

all lights

that lead to you
