Morning Commute

Departing upon
Shadowy and rain-soaked streets
Wiper blades wiping.

Rain and traffic mist
Obscure brake lights and street lamps
Tread upon water

Bus stop figures gather
Miserable amongst the
strip mall lights, naked trees.

Freeway sounds
Traffic and concrete
Water wall

Merging I
Let you in front of me
Fills us both with glee-
Although I got the better of the deal.

Traffic hums
Windshield weeps
Shit its 7:30 already?
