the faces float above you

the eyes glaring at you

each one accusing you of



that when asked

they shrug

and point fingers

declaring open war

and cutting the corner

they wave

out the back window

as if

that is enough

I am free

you hear them shout

as they burst

into the steam

but the dam slows all

and eventually

you pass them again

eating McDonald’s muffins

and swilling coffee

looking sheepish

for their wolfish behavior

hard to do when you

are swilling coffee.

So you leave them behind

turning right for two or more hours

turning right

turning right

turn damn you


We are the sheep of the mechanical herd

we live in boxes

swill McDonalds coffee

and smile


knowing the

last one

wasn’t the last one.
