“Messenger of Peace”

while walking home
i saw
a white dove
land
dab smack
in the middle
of a four-lane road,
on-coming traffic
on both sides

and none of these muthafuckas was tryin to slow down

the dove
took off,
swerved,
barrel-rolled,
dodged,
fluttered and flapped and soared
towards
the horizon
unharmed
and glorious

i guess even
a messenger of peace
needs
to look
both ways
