Turning Right

rox11 167

Vibrating moment where vans,
cars, buses pause – poised on the cusp,
leg muscles tense for the big pedal push,
beggars step back before the forward rush,
policeman draws breath, raises whistle to lips,

crow caws in sudden calm
rickshaw walla tramps down
and we sail illegal, exuberant through the eye of the storm.
