One Way Through Birmingham (2013)

One more long bumpy road

that rattles every

bone in my body.

That’s all that Birmingham

seems to be.

How many people have traveled down this same

street?

How many wished they could

leave?

All I ask is don’t

give me a

twenty-dollar nose bleed

when I decide to

leave.

One more car wreck

with a split bumper

that twists my stomach

in fear for the passengers.

Few stop.

Most drive on

to their nine to

five jobs that

tie a noose around

their necks.
