co-mmute

gun metal sheet of a sky
encases the horizon
like a captive prisoner.
files of cars all shades of gray,
bare trees stripped of their glory,
pricked grass matted
by leftover gravel-ridden snow-
a monochromatic world
preserved in a dystopian play
with crystal clear air
drying drivers’ eyes
compulsorily wide open-
the windows to
sleep deprived minds
in a traffic haze

gun metal shit of a sky
encroaches the horizon
like a captive prisoner.
fucks of cars all shades of gray,
bare trees stripped of their glory,
prick grass matted
by leftover gravel-ridden snow-
a monochromatic world
preserved in a dystopian play
with crystal clear air-
thirsting drivers’ eyes
mandatorily wide open
the windows to
sleep deprived minds
in a traffic smog

billows of impending pollution
from distant smoke stacks
ready to swallow whole
