The Street Fire

The road is burning where the traffic divides.
Black smoke coils into the air.
Patches of black shining around the fire.

A red taxi pulls up to wait for the lights to change.
The driver douses the flames
with mineral water from a plastic bottle.

The smoke clears.
The lights change.

Everything, the street,
the cars, shifts
back into focus.
