Cruising along I-5 we see a traffic jam
in the opposite direction. Cars bumper-
to-bumper for miles and we feel sorry
for those folks. And as we go around
a curve in the freeway we see the cars
that are approaching the traffic jam –
their drivers still happy and unaware
of what lies for them around the bend.
And we feel sorry for them, too –
and a little smug that we’re not in those
lanes. And little do we know that they’re
feeling the same for us as we blissfully,
ignorantly, approach our own traffic jam.
