THE SHRUNKEN ONES
(7/18/14)


I see
them
every
day

barely

people dwarfed
by their
automotive
shells

like shriveled
aliens
piloting
some sort
of interplanetary
attack craft

tiny teenagers
women
and old folks
all trying to
impress

to overwhelm

with several
tons of metal
glass
and plastic

they apparently
feel
more secure
with that sort
of bulky
transport

but as
they wander
in and out
of lane
striping

everyone else's
safety
seems quite
in jeopardy

as this
miniature race
continues to travel
their self important
routes
to nowhere
