Work No. 179; And we Call this Living

Moto Landscape
A Moto Landscape
c. 2006 Michael St.Mark
As you stand stock still
On all Michelin fours
Becalmed by bunching
(Or driving at twenty’s
apparently plenty)

You breathe ( is that the word )
In-car “fresh air vent” exhaust
Coughed from the veh in front.

And as you devour yet another chemical crisp
Washed down with a slug of diet sludge
You contemplate amongst the cones . . .

This, we call living…
