Honku: The Zen Alternative to Road Rage

These are great. Anyone who drives a lot should get a kick out of them. Here's a sample:

What keeps me from just
pelting your honking auto
with rotting garbage?
Psycho behind me
what do you want me to do-
hit the crossing child?
Together again
at the stoplight-was it worth
all of the speeding?
Natural rhythms
moons and tides supplanted by
yellow, red, green
April signs of spring-
nesting doves, blossoming trees,
blood-spattered roadkill
The evening sun sets
white moon journeys up the sky
I'm still in traffic
