Hauling hay bales

Down the highway,

A rusty trailer showers

Passing cars with golden straws.

These sunbeam sticks

Dance up windshields

Like a Peter Pan posse,

Until a gust of wind

Pushes them up, up and over.

Racing down trunks,

Bumping over license plates,

Then leaping to the ground,

They sit like limp tinsel on the pavement,

Waiting in vain for another wild ride.
