there was one time

i was driving down mission road
on the east side of the LA river
it was nearing dusk
i approached cesar chavez
braced myself for downtown traffic
and almost hit the curb
because i saw a goat
trotting along the side of the road

lots of grass to munch
on that stretch of mission
but that goat
sure was in a hurry.

rush hour
gets to
everyone in LA,
i guess,
even the animals.

i keep looking for
mr. goat.
hope i see him
again someday.
