On a Bridge

Turning into the far right lane,
Carefully parking the car
Carrying three small children;
The young woman steps out,
Slowly climbs the railing
And falls.


In one vehicle a driver
Becomes irrate from the delay;
In another a passenger briefly
Looks up from a trending YouTube
Video playing on a smartphone.
