Today Everything Feels Taxi

today everything feels taxi-cab yellow –
loud and bright
with hours rushing by outside my window
if I lean on the horn
will the world slow down for me?

or will I be resented
for disrupting the normal noise?

sometimes, I want to scream
at the rearview mirror
and I don’t think anyone
would hear me
if I bothered to try
