Tonight After a Wonderful Movie

You're going to pass the scene of an accident.
You cannot prevent or control that.
You cannot actively avoid that.
You can drive on,
Palms tight against the wheel,
Legs and spine taut,
Heat rising slow in waves 
From heart to fingertips,
Lucky as all hell 
To remember 
What it was like.
