Possum

Possum
Crossing 
Traffic lanes
Stop to watch
Approaching lights
Comatose
Mesmerized
By piercing
Brilliant sights
Buses, cars,
Trucks, or trains
Scramble visions
In their brains
One Possum
Immobilized
Remains

    I sure did like this one and enjoy seeing it again. I have so many poets to comment to tonight, so I hope you will let me know where that one poem of yours is. I was curious, When you read my penguin poem Pierre. did you realize it was about gays? I just hope that comes through!

    hmmm, the poor thing. Did he get hit or is he still standing there traumatized for life? This was very interesting. I saw Possum on your list, and just had to read this one!!!

    I love word play involving multiple meanings. That's why I very seldom punctuate my poems. Thank you for your wonderful comment.
