daredevil’s jumpsuit

stuck in
the midst of
the breakdown
the life defying
daredevil in
a rhinestone
jumpsuit sitting
in traffic
the oversized
helmet slipping
to obscure my
hindsight as i
careen off of
the median
trying to send
one last
frantic text
needing to be
ignored one
more time
before i take
the last exit
leaving civilization
for greener pastures
where i can
graze on a
new horizon
revving the engine
of my motorcycle
as i gauge
wind speed against
terminal velocity
another smear
at the bottom of
the grand canyon
breaking down
by breaking out
an escape artist
with no
lockpicking skills
and an allergy
to defying death
