Dogs 2015

25 MPH
(6/30/15)


I do not
suffer
slow drivers
gladly

I ride
their bumpers

I race
around them
when finally
clear
to do so

when they
have blocked
me
for some time

I will hit
my horn

even
shoot
the finger

fuckers

the rest
of us
have things
to do

but
if there is
a dog
with its head
hanging out
of a window

relishing
the wind

reveling in
the movement

the freedom

I will
quietly follow
at even
20 miles
below
the posted
speed limit

I will
slowly wait
for any simple joy
when I see
it

I have
so little
of my
own

let those
behind me
honk
