Two things

First the summons
to prove my worthy age —
carded! — to buy
rubber cement.

Ludicrous is good.
We need respite
from sanity
lest we be
weighted
with a surfeit of sense.

Second, key in ignition,
I stopped,
disbelieving my stowaway:
ladybug! blessed spring billboard!
It stretched
winged itself
and was gone
as though never there.

Bestowed by happenstance
a lighter heart.
