Let’s drive

In my youth I drove

to soothe the beast
to tame the beast
to unleash the beast

I drove faster, wilder, and more at ease
than I could have imagined
and now-
I sit and wait for my turn to merge

Traffic flies
by
traffic does not stop
traffic does not cry

Screaming does not make it slow for me
anymore than negotiating
with a clock-
panicking only makes it go faster
it seems

There is no embellishment here
standing naked in the square
and showing all-
how it is to be
how it is to be now

Let us join together
let us eat together
let us pull together

Let us drive
