a split second

there's a green light in front of me
a line of cars in back
no one's honking at me yet
there's a split second before
the stop and the go
brake and acceleration
keep your hands on the wheel at all times
a split second before 
the white noise
the delayed sound
the ringing in my ears
the uncontrollable spinning on
    the slick road
a split second before
this is all over
green to yellow to red
before it's over
b l i n k
there's honking behind me
they've noticed
the pause in reality
I press down on the gas pedal
a split second before
my world changes
