Too Late, we crossed the Intersection.


I didn’t know what hit us — just

    passing by, our bodies felt “lighter than our breathing.”

The world overcrowded by violent traffic,

    Our heart was to the car a green light

to a parking spot where it could crash

  for eternity. I screamed for you to dodge it.

instead you held me in your arms

    gazing and waving hello to its windows. I wanted us

to evade it — but you did not.
