I left you

too busy for the time of day.
let the phone ring off the hook.
not so busy now.
nowhere left to go.

normal day out on the four lane:
no congestions. no complaints.
clear and sunny.
you can see for miles.

detour ahead,
destination roadside.
the world turned upside down.
never saw it coming.

they got up and staggered away.
flashing lights and sirens were your escort home.
I didn't get to say goodbye.
