Death in the city

While walking from a corner
I am stopped by the traffic lights,
there are no cars in sight,
so I cross the street
and a truck jumps out from nowhere;
it is big as a giant monster
it is ferocious as a Velociraptor
it is ubiquitous as a god.
I manage to dodge it
so, I'm safe
for now,
but my blood freezes
with a sharp pain in my left arm,
and a very strong pressure on my chest
and my chin…the chin ...
I have to die today
in one way or the other...
