As the bike I ride 
To avoid honking I decide 
A challenge indeed 
As honking is now more than just a need 

As I consciously honk honk....no more 
Such moments in my understanding of self open new doors 

Honking an invisible extension of my presence 
Recognising and acknowledging the honkers presence...of honking the essence 

Angry honks
Screaming honks
Let me pass first honks
Don't you see me honks 
Listen to me honks 
Seeking attention honks 
Smug honks
Happy honks 

No honking...let me be more aware 
I acknowledge others presence and thus to pause or stop now I am more prepared 

No more, by honking i am throwing  my emotions at others 
Now I use a simple satisfied smile to share with my fellow road travellers

Just a smile and nod of acceptance 
No more honking 
No more cursing 
No more cussing 
No more fussing
