remembrance of a thing past

the highway miles wash off in an
instant and I come up for breath
too long in the rut of irregular
sleep and late-night movies on tv
life on the road is an ordeal
of forced boredom interspersed
with outbursts of thundering
high-speed slow-car-slalom while
overpriced commodities such as
$9 bottles of water only add
insight to injury leading to
the avoidance of stopover points
altogether in the vein of side-
stepping mercantile quicksand
the ma and pa general store
best generally blown off as
a fanciful hangover from a now
nonexistent fairy tale mythology when
horsepower still smelled like
pure manure.
