A Fatalistic Approach.


Fatalistic Approach.  


Death grinned
at me today
a red slash
mixed with
an aluminum blur
97 miles an hour
cut in front of
my lesabre
brakes squealing
like a cheap violin
saluting the
interloper with
a single digit
as other cheap violins
played a medley
between the breaks
behind me
fingers blossomed
out of numerous fists
a bouquet
presented to me
as an encore
while the guilty
in a cloud of
exhausted tempers
eyes glaring
as the suddenly
more alert drivers
to the rear of me
pass in a parade
of disgust
huffing and puffing
with hurried ugly glances
somewhere in the midst
of all this havoc
death grinned at me
his skull shining
in the hot july sun
his visage winking
off the bumpers
of the cars all around me
but I ignored
his fatalistic approach
and continued my
life's journey.
