5 MILES OVER
(12/28/16)

we motor
down
the avenue

going
with the flow
of traffic

a group
of us

no doubt
spotting
the speed limit
signs

checking
our speedometers

accelerating

slightly

driving 40
in a 35
seems like
grasping back
something
lost

they take
so much
from us

we feel
the need
to cheat
the system
on principle

trying
to get away
with just
a little

to keep us
from feeling

quite a lot
insane
