Right of Way

Kevin Casey

Even the dark meteor of a hearse,
hauling its tail of twenty cars across
the suburban afternoon, paused on its path

to its waiting crater for the bus’s lights
that flashed crimson against sunny yellow,
the departed yielding the right of way

to the boy with his vinyl backpack
and a handful of papers that fluttered
in the breeze as he ran across the road.

Kevin Casey is the author of Ways to Make a Halo (Aldrich Press, 2018) and American Lotus, winner of the 2017 Kithara Prize (Glass Lyre Press, 2018).
