“Ode to the Woman Who Flipped Me the Bird Today” by Renee Hughes

Oh you who greeted me
With upraised finger three
As I passed your car mess
I hope your day was blessed.

I did not take your sign
With insult or with whine.
Smiling, to you I sent
Wishes with good intent.

You have a left arm, dear
To turn on your blinker
When changing lanes, my word,
Not to flip me the bird.

I honked just right before
You gestured out your door
Because your car sat so
When the signal said go.
