Route 31, 4:37 A.M.

On a Tuesday

at 4:37 A.M.,

on NJSH Route 31 South,

the Toyota Camrys

and the Honda Odysseys

keep polite company

with the pick-up trucks,


“How are you this morning,”

and, “Isn’t it remarkable how,”

and, “Yes, one must consider.”

And the bakery truck passes,

and asks,

“Oh, excuse me–

are you just getting up?”
