traffic jam

this freeway is

the path to your future –

but brake lights blink in front

stop – go – stop – go – stop

the roadside billboards

push & pull on your desires

offering all that you need

for a new improved life

slowly you roll

forward (in space

.                  backwards) in time

while your prescription drug fueled mind

whispers of conspiracies

you take in polluted air

(a consequence of progress)

& hope for some movement

as life overtakes you
