Walking in Traffic

In the damp 
air the odor hangs
burnt oil and old 
cigarettes
Beams of light blind 
the vision
hands are useless 
against the onslaught
Walking in traffic 
is dangerous
dirty
Why 
take such chances
you ask
Confounded 
by the question
he responds 
we have to 
get from here
to there
Just follow
I know how to
walk in traffic
