Five-Thirty Traffic Noise

Flivvers sputter black-smoke
fricative syllables
from uncleaned exhaust pipes.
Fledgling executive,
frowsily munching her
farl breakfast cake, mutters:
"Far too early for this."

Tiel, your first attempt at a Pleiades is a very good one. I enjoyed reading this. It makes me think of an executive who's in a rush to get to the office for an early meeting. Nice job. Have a nice day.
