Petty, Not Cruel.

Steve Arviso - September 7, 2018 - Madness /

I’d rather someone give me the finger than wave at me when they cut me off in traffic. Because at least then, they’re being honest. Not just with me, but themselves.

If you cut me off in traffic
and wave and laugh
when our eyes meet,
as my breaks lock,
my tires screech,
and my horn blares,
all for the sake of Del Taco
thirty-seconds sooner,
I hope you shit yourself
in full public view.

Petty, Not Cruel. Steve Arviso. 2018.
