today

uncanny but brooding
this impatient simmering,
hurtful and caustic.

little brown lizard
on the right side,
now inside the bonnet

the signal at red,
smoking and coughing
just missed one life.

skin tight purple,
yellow sports bike
ugly, clumsy, fallen.

a not-delirious fever,
a constant oppression-
the price for being polite.

a few harsh words,
a little short of danger
the ugly ego wins again

some lost friendships,
some young, some old.
a bitter medicine.
