On the morning commute,
faces flash by,
their windshields film screens,
playing a flickering moment
of their screenplay.
The wagon is in a critical state,
no eyes on the road.
The flatbed is dreaming
The minivan has broken into chaos.
But the drama of the convertible,
hair flying, a storm of gesticulation,
sunglasses the only mirrored calmness,
makes me wish I were
more than a voyeur.
As they speed away
toward the pharmacy
I can see in the rearview mirror
that their brake lights are on,
burning small suns.
