Slow-Moving Rush-Hour

by Brendan Strong

Go go go! Go! Go go go!

The feet attack the pedals

after

The lights attack the eyes.

 

To get across- pass the box, pass the

FUCKING BOX

And

Wait.

 

Read the license plates

And bumper stickers:

Remember none.

 

In a shop a little girl is pointing

To something you can’t see

In the window display.
