Ode
When you are near,
tears come to my eyes.
My head becomes light
and the room starts to fade.
When you walk by
you take my breath away ...
I really wish
you wouldn't wear so much perfume.

Sitting in Awesomely Bad Traffic
I hear the sweet siren song of my cubicle.
It calls to me. It knows my name.
It knows I need to be there by 8:30.
Sitting, waiting, creeping along
like an overly tired toddler,
traffic has been lulled to a deep sleep
by the lullaby of the closed freeway.
All lanes have been blocked off.
The vehicles groan in the agony
of the unfulfilled promise of their journey's end.
Sitting, waiting, creeping along,
I put the gear in park and wonder,
"Will I ever make it to my cubicle?"

Being from Atlanta, you should have a deep appreciation for traffic. Not quite NYC traffic, but impressive in terms of traffic / person.

Uh, yeah. This poem was written a year ago when a tanker turned over on the perimeter and I was stuck in traffic for 4 hours.

Since then, I mostly learned to deal with it. I've been learning Japanese on my long journey to and from work. [Cool] [Big Grin]

Ugh...why did you have to remind me how I spent a good part of my Saturday night? [Razz]

In the time it took me to go about 4 long blocks and 10 short blocks...and park... my friend managed to miss a bus, catch another, and walk a few blocks - from Queens to Manhattan. [Wink]

Deep stuff. You are breaking new ground here chicgeek. This is the first poem I have ever read about the pain of separation from one's cubicle. We all need a cubicle in life. [Wink]

Very witty actually, both of them made me smile!
