Downtown Lane

Stuck in blissful traffic

Sydney, October 2022

Stuck, traffic. Evening shine
blissful on my face

zoof, zoof

speedy cars, vested men
zoof past

on the downtown
bus lane

gruntingly roll down
my dirt covered window

gotta perform my civil duty
like my padres,
bless them,
taught me

dickhead, facktwat, dumbwit. Can't
drive on the,
downtown bus lane

the vest grins. The
traffic light chimes


off he is. Possibly
to save the next, already extinct, turtle species

Surely, his time
on the downtown bus lane

Is worth more than mine
