life will kill usMature

registering consciously now
that every passing moment
is a choice
to stop,
to go,
to step into the traffic?
and every moment i decide
to let the pavement steer me
knowing full well it saves me
by only a fraction
and i consider my choice
-not to mutilate my flesh
for the sake of sensation-
while i hide on the verge
slowly choking on the fumes
