Staring Back

underdarkness's picture

Speed away on the wet, slick road,
My heart, heart thumping
To the sound of despairing music,
base pumping,
windows down,
A cigarette in my hand.

Does your heart spin all the way
When you see my face
in the rear view mirror?
I hope you see my face
when you close your eyes.
I hope the words you said serve you well.
