Challenging Situation

Passing on a Mountain Road


Descending from 10,000 feet.
Approaching a motor scooter going about 10 mph.
Hitting the gas.
No passing zone.
No time to dart back behind him.
Here we go! Suck in your fenders!
Remembering the streets of Johnstown, PA,
less room than what I have here,
and they drive that way all the time.
Cars coming up will give me room
if they don’t want to be scrunched.
About got it.
Another turn.
Car coming head-on.
Time to tuck back in.
We’re fine.
A quick look in the rearview reveals
the hair of the two ladies in the backseat
just turned a shade grayer.
