Notice - Poem by Floyd Crenshaw

Today I almost hit a car.
Well, the car almost hit me.
Barreling through the commuter lot,
At least twenty.
I’m backing out slow.
Real slow.
But my head
Shoulder over shoulder
Right, blur, left, blur, right, blur, left
premium increase, cops, paper work,
a real stupid situation
vroom the pick up truck sped by
my brother didn’t even notice.

    Floyd, this is excellent. I love the choppy nature of the later lines, brilliant!
