not illegal

two lane highway
construction ahead.
orange sign:
left lane closed.
most people merge into
the right.

the line is long.
the left lane’s still open
for a few hundred yards
before the barrels and
the bottleneck.

a truck bucks the trend.
he doesn’t merge.
he speeds to the end
of the left lane.
he has no where else to go.
he forces his way in
to the right lane.

everyone behind him says,
screw him, but
he goes about his way.

he says,
‘well they coulda done it.
it ain’t illegal.’
and he’s right.
it’s just something.
