United Nations finds pedestrian driver switch = peace

an ash quarter horse buggy buggies
& a Ford Model A four-wheeler
wheels over orange dust
& a red-seat Kawasaki
 & silver side-car weaves between lanes

& Adam prams a pram
with two-month Jane

& Jill’s hairless
right arm swings
a tan briefcase

& John jogger jogs in red stripped
white sweat pants
 > two-hundred years
pedestrians on the side

& vehicles in the center

the rules of the road Bill is law

roads will Bea grey cemented

& sidewalks black tarred

& Jack’s 33” haired legs
walks two-miles per hour
Nike step after Nike step

& Eve motors a white Ford F
wearing a black head-scarf
with tail tarring the sidewalk
