Spring Poetry Slam #2: Traffic

Surprisingly cool,
traffic sound on wet pavement.
Heart follows the cars.


  1. I couldn't write a haiku if somebody put a gun to my head, though really, could anybody under that kind of pressure? Is this a haiku? Meh.

  2. "cars whispering on the rain...."

    an old line from a 30 year old poem of mine.

    I like "heart follows the cars." Excellent.

  3. Follows to where? Where did the heart wish to travel?


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

-'The Hair Song', by Black Mountain

Tell me what is in your heart...
