SINNERS' BOULEVARD
(7/21/18)

the light
turns
green

we all
begin
to go

but then
a sedan
pulls in front
of two lanes
of moving traffic
in its direction

in front of
three lanes
of oncoming

in order
to make
a last second
left turn
from the
right most
lane

all vehicles
traveling through
the intersection
come to
a sudden stop
to avoid
collision

the miracle
was not
the lack
of grinding metal

but that
no one
cast
the first
car horn

we have all
apparently
had our
citations

our wrecks

nobody
feeling superior

we allow
the transgressor
to pass

then cautiously
resume
our journeys
