I Love Cars

Updated on April 25, 2011

They seem 
More aggressive this year 
Engine revving 
Beside me 

Mass of metal 
Speeding by 
Like a very large bullet 
Anger in the rumble 
Toxicity in the smell 

I no longer judge them 
I have been angry 
Looking for a target 

What better than 
A cyclist 
In tights and 
High visibility 
On what basically is 
An onramp so 

If the car horn screams 
Shiny metal
Death streaks  
Past me at a light

I am not perturbed 
Not angry 
I am present 

And though you curse me 
I love you
Because you are me 

And I love me 
Even when I 
Am in the rotary 

As I see you go 
Angrily by 
I wish 
You could 
Have what I have 
This road intimacy 
This raw velocity 
The wind and sweat 

Tell you a 

When it’s raining 
And I have a flat 
I wish I was you
