Random Poem:

To have is not to be (little yellow car)

My little yellow car reflects
the world rushing towards me
on its shiny yellow hood:
yellow men, women,
children, birds and
Sometimes I stop my yellow car
in a quiet place beneath
a yellow tree, and I stare
into it but my eyes
are always still
