#250 of 365 – “racing the straights”

“racing the straights”


I drive fast

as if time

were getting



and I’m trying

to make up

for my fear

and delay



the edges

of not yet

and almost



the straights

away from nevermind’s



sometimes I sit

when I arrive

as if to take in

the view


and try to reconcile

the journey

I am bumbling

    WOW–love “nevermind’s ghost”, and that with all that speeding you still end up bumbling through the journey. Wonderful writing.

    Oh my God – I LOVE this one!
