Jam
JoelJosol

I did not take the ramp today,
 1
believing straight roads
 2
are easier to navigate,
 3
but six-by-six trucks
 4
and swerving cabs halting,
 5
stall my poem abruptly,
 6
like an unexpected brake light
 7
flashing.
 8
 
 
I wiggle my head,
 9
like a pencil in between fingers,
 10
unable to remove a poem
 11
from a jam.
