From The Heart Of An Eleven Year-Old Honda

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Three Shots in Thirty-Seven Seconds


In October,
My 2004 Honda 
traveled 3000 miles
in less than 85 hours.

I was  returning 
from New York 
to Long Beach.

Since that time,
the same vehicle
has been driven
no further than 
three miles from
home to Starbucks.

The journey always
commences before
sunrise when the 
hot house java
is at its tastiest.

Scenery is scenery
wherever it is seen
while my co-pilot
is soundly asleep
on the opposite 
coast, dreaming
about California.
  
The yellow lines
are the same on
both coasts.

  1. There's the Sky's Columella
    Nacre noting the yellow path
    Saffron's sister out at night
    Guiding the horizontal bungee
    Back to his shell to be alone.

    1. I don't know what to say
      I've never been called a
      horizontal bungee
      before but vertical bungees
      give me vertigo.
