Cowards and Fools

A game of chicken
cannot be won
if neither of us
the coward

we face off
twitch to twitch
in witness of the sun
as she lowers her head
refusing to participate
in tomfoolery

but engines have gunned
dollars cast sides
and we sure as hell
wouldn't want
to disappoint

(Snapped this picture on the way home from work....iPhone balancing on the steering wheel. The clouds reminded me of a cock-fight, or cars playing chicken. Even clouds can be stupid. Taking pictures in rush hour traffic, equally so.)
