The Tailgater

On the slow and winding
a man in a black pickup truck
in a great rush
to some unknown destination
drove close enough
to the car in front of him
so that a tap on the breaks
if something should unexpectedly
cross the road
would have caused an accident.

Weaving back and forth,
he found a moment
to speed past
in a short section
of straight road
only to wait at the intersection
for the traffic on the main road
as the car he passed
slowly caught back up with him.
