Paying the Fees of Life

I stop

(red light at a tollbooth)

and wonder, as I exchange

my dollar ninety

for safe passage,

what toll do trolls demand?

I escape into the vast beyond,

asking the steering wheel

how many more tolls

line this road before

the end,

asking, incidentally,

if I have enough change

for the journey?
