#38 Bubbles

A car drives into another car

Puncturing bubbles of insularity.

Like an escaped gas,

The injured party

Rushes out with a knife-

 he was on edge, 

 had so many pressures building within,

 he was rushing, barely seeing,

 had no time-

He strides to the offending vehicle,

Throws open the door,

Hears no apologies

Fails to register a frightened face,

With the knife, opens

The delicate membranes 

Of an old man.

From within passing cars, 

Calls for help are activated. 

Sirens begin, another helicopter

Loosed into the sky
