morning fix

Standard

an inexplicable traffic knot
no wreck
or struck deer
remnants of someone’s favorite bureau
strewn
leaves us sitting in the early dark
with our steel encased coffees
and minty yawns
damp heads swiveling
for the reason
we’ve paused
no longer on our way
but forced to be fixed
foot on brake
as we wait
suspended in soft rain
breathing
the sealed moment
before dawn
