From the verandah of the sky rise structure
images of the canvas come to life
slow motion-the spectacle eye catching
urgent, fast forward
reel out of a film.
Angry drivers honking, docile ones waiting
cars being towed, caught in the vicious circle
ducking through traffic
garbage on road, flying out of windows
Slush, pot holes anything but amusing.
Human resources interacting
stuck in the mangle, unable to disentangle
to uninvolved bystander setting fascinating,
negativity, misery resulting.
Litmus test wading and maneuvering
adverse impact reverberating
what sheath of armour to wear
at the milieu not swear?
Elusive calm for find in the daily grind.
