Traffic

Read by Zell Miller III

Like a big pool of disaster sometimes

The highway

Concrete

Metal

Plastic

Paint

Noise

You’re stuck on I-35

Honking like a wild animal

And pulling out your hair

Sitting still and hating life

Minutes like hours

Your wheels slowly turn

And you want to go crazy

But you don’t, not today.

This is 5 p.m. in Austin.
