did I tell you?

I nearly heard the horn last night--
the car missed by inches as it sped
with the addled driver
gritting teeth as he clutched the wheel--

I boarded the bus when it came minutes later
and a few blocks down looked out the window

to see Speedy Hotass pulled aside--
his face red in the spinning cherrytop
as he looked up at the cop--broad as a billboard--

would the world always work so perfectly...
