Limited

Sign reads:
limited sight
distance

all of us
are limited
in our lines of sight

we know
what we know,
we fear
what we don’t

this is not new knowledge

but I guess we need signs
to remind us

green
yellow
red

we need to be told what to do

or we would wreck
our complex little brains,
cause a jam

do not block intersection,
sign reads: out of order
