Still, we wait

muting our movements

stalling our existence

installing rules of safety
tickling our muscles
implicating boldness, we stay,


Waiting for our signal

Red light

green light

yellow light

neon lights

We inch our existence


Shifting our movements

red light

yellow light

green light

traffic lights

it controls us,

like remote
we are the robots

red light stop.

yellow light slow…..
green light go!
traffic light is in control.
