Dogs 2015

STOPPED ON GREEN
(9/27/15)


go ahead

take
your time

don't mind
the rest of us
trapped behind you
as traffic
in the next lane
rushes by

we have
nowhere
to go
anyway

I'm sure
that your
smart phone

your fingernails

your genitalia

whatever
has you
so fascinated
in a downward
direction

is far more
important
than this river
of humanity
gathering
behind your dam
of stupidity

don't mind
the honking

we really
don't want
to disturb
you

finally
you're looking
up?

you seem
confused

did you forget
that you were
driving again?

do you
see us all
now
in your
rear view?

hi there

why
are you looking
back?

you should
be moving
forward

which
you do
just as the light
goes amber

the person
directly behind
you
bravely rides
your bumper
through red

leaving
the remainder
of this stuck
animosity
to wait

we wish
you
a wonderful
journey

really
