I Saw A Hearse

I saw a hearse today
heading west
toward the river
when I was coming from the north
heading south
slowing down for the stop sign
the hearse didn’t have to stop and
there were two pick-up trucks behind it
one of them was red
but I don’t remember
the color of the other one
I don’t think they had
anything to do with the hearse
but I don’t know that for sure
I guess it was strange
seeing it like that
moving along with
the normal flow of traffic
I mean
how often do you see them
unless they’re leading a funeral procession
I kept wondering
if there was a body in the back
or maybe
someone had just died and
it was going to pick them up
