Divider

Please stay on the right side of the highway.
Adhere to the divide as if it were
the color line in a ’60s diner.
Follow along with the throng on your drive
without question, get swept away like an
SS officer with an obsession.
Signal all lane changes so those behind
can more easily pass you by. Maintain
appropriate speeds at all times or face
your fear: red and blue flashing lights in your
rearview mirror. I cannot make this last
point any clearer: do not speed up or
slow down, but continue straight in the same
direction as your peers, and never veer.
