I Was Listening to the Radio

By Joe Labriola

 

The snaking chain of very busy people behind me

honked their horns

and tossed their hands to the sky in utter anguish

as I paused in the traffic to let a car turn into our lane.

 

The man I let in, smiled and waved,

and when we reached the next light,

he kept his blind course steady

despite the woman trying to sneak into our lane,

honking expletives,

her hands tossed to the sky in utter anguish.
