and so we took offin a whirlwind of

pulsating speakers and abandoned insecurities
tryingto break the sound barrier
in a '94 Toyota Camry

* * * *

every unfulfilled expectation
as we cranked up thevolume
until the dial finally broke off

the shimmering of headlights
the white-hot heartbeats of othertravellers like ourselves
and soon there was only the side glances and insidejokes
of three intertwining auras
knowing that, once in a while, you justneed to grab the keys
