Traffic and Torture, Cars and Cruelty

Consider all the city streets that people drive, and all the streets where others die. Some of us drive more than others die, but many die as horrifically as others drive. For every car on the road there are at least four or five different ways to die—terrorist attacks, stabbings, drug overdose, physical abuse, and road rage. Traffic and torture, cars and cruelty. It’s either lights out, or getting stuck at a light, waiting for it to change from red to green. Waiting for the blood in the streets to clean up its act. Waiting for insanity to finally get a job at the DMV, offer equanimity its license.
