Name Tags -- Poetry 2011

Several name tags
stuck to her car’s visor
reminding her who she was -
where she’d been.
None gave a clue to where
she was going…
markers of place and time.
Printed or hand written, they
peeled slightly next to clipped on
garage door opener… a turkey
buzzard feather was wedged between;
for a safe journey, a friend claimed.
Name tags rotated;
feather frayed;
door opener batteries changed.
None gave a clue to when she’d arrive…
