Missing Bowie: A #poetryport gift for @mrkubasek and hope you avoid the Streetcar Named Disaster #clmooc #netnarr #edu307

Stop, go
no flow
phone dead
light red
can't find Bowie
on the radio

picket fences
manicured lawns
hedgerow lanes with
countless name
Crawl around the Street Car
named disaster
need to move faster

Stuck on
Chestnut
gut punch
plod along

Aint life Grand

Stop, go
no flow
phone dead
light red
can't find Bowie
on the radio

left late
roll right
22, stuck too
Highway flagger
frozen
stuffed parrot
stuck on stop
Come on Tom,
need a ship
or gonna flip

impasse on 5
never gonna arrive
Brown
 broke down Dodge,
Dead Dacshund
in the road
Blocking
Gridlock
Traffic's bitter taste
seals  fate
gonna
blow my head out
in this car

Stop, go
no flow
phone dead
light red
can't find Bowie
on the radio

Wednesday's start
at Five O'Clock
 in traffic
I rot
pull into
parking lot

running through
double doors
Make sure to
say hi to
Ms. Crublemore
or it's side eye
a mile wide
Hit the gas
get to class
"Hey turn off the dub
sorry kids no sub"
