City lights flashing 

Exhaust with broken bottles 

The side of the road 


The author's comments:

This piece was inspired by highways, it just fascinates me how much random stuff is on the side of roads sometimes. So I decided to write a haiku.

I do think the sides of highways are truly wonderful, they may not look great but I think that’s what gives them character. Makes something worthwhile to write about.

From win and lose and still somehow
