a car inches towards the street,
like a cautious deer taking a peek
to see if the coast is clear.
while you wait, another car is coming near.
you pull out fast in front, can’t stop now.
the other car isn’t far behind, honking loud.
a swerve of the steering wheel,
like a cheetah after a gazelle or a shark with a seal.
boom, a collision.
stung like snakes poison.
people flock like birds to food.
piled up like ants on a dune.
cars line up for miles,
like ducks in a line.
it’s the animal kingdom.
it’s anything but random.
here comes karma.
