Car : cyclist impingement of road space –
every day – two or three times daily some days.
this car, the cutting off car,
the, not paying attention car
the might is right car
heavily chromed, full-sized
odd shaped windows, something covered with flowers
and where the should be driver … an empty space.
“I’m really sorry,”
a voice and uniform emerge from the far side
Cadillac, left-hand drive, pause.
An apology, but also request –
intertwining cloned doppelgänger streets
Google Maps is confused
he has to have the deceased home by three –
it is 2.50
do I know?
explanation fails to bring enlightenment.
I offer to lead ….
but helmet, sunglasses, ear band – seemed disrespectful.
“No mate,” he drops a formal courtesy of a chauffeur,
“ keep it all on
There’s some mad drivers out there.”
We both dissolve into laughter.
