brilliant orange

Driving through the streets
of Amsterdam drinking coffee
listening to New Order
that old, metallic disco
slaloming around those pretty
orange traffic cones
those visitors from another galaxy
who make us feel chrome-plated
and safe. Blowing off the coffee steam
one hand on the wheel of my rented car
I taste the cream and sweet sugar, thinking
Anything can be beautiful.
