it seems it’s become
a popular thing
around my little city
for the public works dept.
to have police direct traffic
for a day
so they can
tear apart a road
and then leave it for weeks
ledges of asphalt
or drainage covers
that slam into your wheels
knock the life out of your car
until enough time has passed
when another cop
will be directing traffic
and they’ll put the road back together
and it’ll be just how it was
in the first place
and you wonder
was it really all worth it?
