Rilke on the 10


Surely, giving the finger

to the man tailgating you on Highway 10

is poetry too, and should be counted


where they count such things

in Rilke’s heaven.

Among my tropes and ruses


and the CD playing today’s road music

and the ominous signage for Pasadena

looming ahead of me like the SAT


there’s room for my own version

of “you must change your life”:

You must change your lane.

- Karen Chamisso
