#NaPoWriMo – Day 7 : “Take A Ride”

Take a Ride // by Jennifer Patino

 

Your favorite songs are
about rain, but you hate

driving in it,      You complain
of added pain on these grey days

One speaker is out in your old car
so you sing loudly to make up

for it,     You never know where
you are when you head downtown

and I take a stab at directions
and back up harmony surround sound

Roundabouts make me sick
and I pray the squealing brakes

will hold,     Too quick stops,
hard rights,     I hold on,     You take

your hand off the wheel to
tap the air freshener hi hat

I feel my heartbeat in the loose wheel
beneath me,     When you can’t deal,

When it pours too heavily, you toss
the key to me,     I take over,

You groan and moan,     I drive too
slow,     This is how it always goes
