The digital billboard
over the motorway
advises drivers thus.
CHECK YOUR FUEL.
Is this what you might call an autocue?
I wonder out loud if it is but one sign in a series,
coming to a screen near you.
If so, I’m looking forward to:
IN CASE OF RAIN, ACTIVATE WIPERS
STEER YOUR VEHICLE IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR DESTINATION
TURN THE ENGINE OFF WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
