driving i stop at the lights. cars honk. it’s green. for only a second or two i confuse break with gas, panic rising as more cars begin to honk. turning right to escape them all i drive straight in what seems like forever but only until nothing was on the road except dust and i. it felt safe to pull over. my head tilted up toward the sky and tears escaped closed eyes. pretending to be okay has a lifecycle and it was time to pray for a new one.
