red tail lights

Los Angeles traffic.

Hours of an Angelino's life is spent staring at unmoving snakes of tail lights. There's a beauty, sometimes, in these long streams of red and white glowing in the darkness.

But when a close family member is in the hospital twenty miles away, rush hour seems to stretch to infinity.

red tail lights
in clogged arteries
my dad's blood count
