why i don’t drive

13 May

the bottleneck is stop and start herky jerky.
it reshuffles my organs like lottery balls
and then the on ramp arrives
and then the prize arrives.
off in the near distance;
just to the right;
angling towards the sky;
coils jetting from its unfinished tongue.
i’m video game certain i can fly.

    Almost exactly why I gave up, but I still accept rides!

      The rides dizzy me even more. I’m holding out for telepathy so I can anticipate stops starts and sudden ornery turns.

    That is absolutely excellent. Kudos to you, sir.
