I squeeze on the pedal as I get on the 40th Street bridge
The pedal squeezes back
The green arrows join in
Go go go
The evening rains have washed away the lines
I'm navigating by cat's eye
Like a Navy pilot lost at sea
Guided by instruments and a wake of bioluminescent plankton
Kicked up by the carrier
Merge left
What takes an hour at five I do in a minute
The rebadged Isuzu swerving hard
Replaced with a gas tanker
A blobby Porsche SUV next
Exit toward Erie you cunt
What the subdivision lacks in sidewalks they make up
In streetlamps
The rabbit darts across the leopard yard
Thanks for keeping an eye on things
