Hula Hoop Girl

You wore hula hoops 
on all your fingers 
and with one hand 
on the steering wheel 
you drove at twilight.
Lost again,
in some anonymous place 
you flicked one off
by accident
a yellow band of potato
it landed somewhere-
the red lights changed to green 
you didn't care, 
you just searched 
the floor of your car
for that one hula hoop.
Honk! Honk!
I love you hula hoop girl-
you plonk!
