Traffic

Look at all of this traffic

The school bus that held my childhood horrors crashed

Into the limo I didn’t get into for prom

And now, four lanes of vans that took me to soccer practice and

Sports cars a boyfriend of mine never drove

Are sitting next to run-down sedans that are dented

From every trauma I’ve had

And I have to sit here

At this green light

Watching it unfold

Look at all of this traffic
