The Daily Grind

Grinding teeth
Waking to the highway
Traffic jam
Stuck daily
Draining minutes off

Through red light alleys
The shamed stumbling
Past decaying garbage
Decades of waste
Denumont in another tasteless evening
The money maid
Filth dripping down
Her stocking leg
Culmination of mistakes made
Stumbles out across a windshield

Flashing lights
In morning's glory
Blood smeared fender
Tells the story
Of screams from a runaway
Silenced by shattering glass
The sun and moon
Share the sky
Balance in the universe
Remains unfair.
