While suspended

on Leach Highway near
the Abernethy Road
turnoff, arterialed
by roadworks &
standstill traffic,
the storm that
lumbered then crawled,
menacing
since noon
springs its snare
*
Rain descends
like StopMotion,
or a GIF file
capturing constancy
through
smeared safety glass
*
You glance sideways
at slick
bulldozers aligned with
forklifts &
wonder if such
order
should
prevail
