Some Days

NaPoWriMo 2022 // day 18

some days
are just train wrecks
and you know it

but others
are a train stuck
on the tracks
smack in the middle of the crossing

instead of scrambling
for 911 and rescue plans
you simply
s t a l l
and idle
breathe some exhaust
tap the steering wheel with
your restless thumbs
and wish the radio
actually worked

someone
is going to come by
and spray-paint
graffiti
all over you, too

you don’t leap into action
because
there’s nothing
to do
nothing
but
you
waiting
waiting
waiting for something
to MOVE
