Choices-A Villanelle

Choices
by Rhonda Davis

When we see the rearview reflections
as strangers pass the other way
life has so many directions.

On the compass we had an election
so we won’t go there today
when we see the rearview reflections.

Let’s choose the sweet confections
leading our tongues to say
life has so many directions.

I’d rather choose perfection
because cold images get in my way
when we see the rearview reflections.

When you feel the pain of dejection
and life reaches out for its pay
when we see the rearview reflections
life has so many directions.
