nowhere fast

there is an endless stream of

bright bulbs lit up like a string

red and white on dark asphalt


starting

and

stopping


going

and

braking


everyone in a rush to get nowhere

and fuming in their little boxes because

of how long it is taking them to get there


at the head of the neon snake is a mangled mess

of aluminum and steaming motor oil

bleeding out on the pavement


they peer out the windows of their wheeled boxes

as they pass

on their own way


hoping to catch a glimpse


to put a face to

the one that

inconvenienced

them so much



they think to themselves as they roll by

poor guy


and turn their radios back up listening to commercials

as they go nowhere
