It happened 40 minutes ago.
4:08 in the morning.
The street is dark and blinking is the red traffic light
blink blink blink
I look to my left for a second then to my right for a second and a half.
I started to turn left and then I hear it.
Tires screeching against the asphalt and the dim lights of a blacked-out Hummer.
I stop my car, thinking the Hummer has plenty of space to continue its way.
In slow motion it approaches my door.
In slow motion, I am in peace.
In slow motion and I wonder why this Hummer is was speeding.
In slow motion I wonder if it had been my fault.
In slow motion I am ready for the hit.
In slow motion I am ready to die.
The Hummer and I are both in pause.
I can almost hear our engines breathing heavily.
I come back into real time and realize there was no incident
There was no damage
Just my heart racing in my throat and I am sure in the Hummer’s driver as well.
I drive forward making my left turn and leaving the Hummer to its thoughts.
