(for their own sake)


(for their own sake)


Let him see the world, alone, from within his jalopy,

be solo while roaming that monotonous stretch of highway 

leading to no destination, ever,

the trauma 

of hearing only sleep-inducing drones,

of the rumble of tires on asphalt,

the unchanging intonation of his own voice,

his aggravation at being able to steer toward,

but never arriving at an idea that stands outside his lane.
