Yellow 

 

Warnings come at intervals

along the road:

one line bending into another,

a hieroglyph of a deer 

leaping,

the T that hits a curve,

an X with R’s in its alcoves,

one miniature fire engine

fronted with torso and head.

Day in and day out

they stand at key moments,

passed like local scenery.
