Inspired by Tracy Chapman

You’re car wasn’t fast

it was slow

enough for me to flow

into the first flowers of spring, rushing past the window

We were cruising ships in the sun

driving in your car

no jackets just warmth & conversation

Down the avenue to anywhere me & you

navigating pitfalls, the roads in the holes in the road

We’re travelling 

sometimes faster

spinning with every angry piston

SHHH Listen to the power purring in this engine

moving us along in your car

barreling towards the future

Feel like I could be somebody to love in here 

watching the world passing


Let me know what you think!
