PettyB

He has to swerve to the right –
the jeep was speeding straight ahead
with the driver’s malicious grin
thrown like some firecracker
in his face.
Screeches to a stop
to pick up a squalid hawker
who stares at him in his Kia
like an idiot figuring out a tabloid.
O if he could only have his gun
in his glove compartment:
road rage is not irrational
it is rather his little volcano
raring to explode & justify his cause.
Does he have to write a text
to rectify what dialecticians
would censure as an unjust act –
kill this two-bit worker
cheap labor subsumed by capital
who acts like some Mussolini
in the work force?
