The Last Car Ride Home

fragments, still fading

lingering, debating

whether or not to replay

the nothing to say

of the last car ride home


and now comes the time

for time to go by

you wish you had never conjured me

my name in ink on a stone in your head

now blue-eyed wisdom of the misinformed

conjures a villain to replace the hour we met

one mirage to the next


and now comes the time

for time to go by


here we are, reduced to the silence

of a dimly-lit dashboard

and the low-beam glow

dancing mockingly with the yellow line

on the last car ride home
