SHARE THE ROAD
(1/26/13)


an exodus
from the city
seemed
the only way
until we met
the oncoming vehicles
from the next
metroplex
heading toward
our point
of departure

traffic
jammed
in both directions
and growing smoke
on either horizon
we now measure
our lives
by our fuel
gauges

we read
the highway
signs
of yesterday
knowing that
the next exit
will be
our last
