Parking Lot Paint

The car’s cubicle. They are the most self-indulgent
strips of yellow I’ve ever seen.

In between the last two coats of fresh
paint I had seven haircuts.

Fescue and clover, battered by
tires, wave.

The newest coat looks more orange
than usual.

On the happiest days I wonder if I’ll outlive
my parking space.
