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.
