Staring at Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”

By Scott T. Starbuck

You thought you were a winged being
until you came to Earth and fought

for a parking spot when late
to a doctor’s appointment,

floored it, and squeezed in
just before an angry kid-driver,

also late, reached in his glove box
for a gun.
