Writing Wednesday: Traffic


Every morning we drive to work and every afternoon we drive home.  We have seen tractor trailers jack-knifed and turned on their sides.  We have seen the NYPD pull over speeders.  We have seen emergency medical technicians saving lives.  We have seen bumper to bumper traffic with rubbernecking as its cause.

We did not see the vehicle on our left, coming towards us at 60 miles per hour.  Traffic everywhere.  Boxed in like a caged mouse.  Montage sequences of a wakeful, unreal nightmare. You were gone.

Never did I think that I would have to make this commute without you.

Fortunately, I live in a small town where traffic jam lasts for 10 mins in the morning and 10 mins in the evening >:)

I wish NYC had 10 minute traffic jams. Ours last hours . . .
