That pothole
under the bridge that’s
being retrofitted behind
concrete Jersey barriers tagged
with black graffiti and
an eight foot construction wall painted
baby blue, which
redirects traffic into
one lane so dump trucks can
come and go except
during rush hours when
gridlock quickly
frustrates commuters whose
tires chew into asphalt with
stops and start-ups day
after day–two times a day–for
almost one year,
has doubled in size.
