i, too, am not a bit tamed

feed me the sunset
in ribbons of road,
the cost of freedom
in miles per gallon
regular unleaded, dirt-
streaked windows
down and bare-
headed, chewing on
possibilities and loose
strands of hair.  one foot
on the pedal, the other
on the dash, left arm out
in the wind of eleven miles over,
just this side of reckless.

  1. Ooohhh… i felt the breeze in my hair!! On one of our road trips, I had seen a girl in a red Mustang convertible, top down, driving at about 75mph… and I felt, i really felt I was there!! The exhilaration in just seeing was so much.. I cannot even begin to imagine how FREE and WILD she must have been feeling! Phheeww

    Loved reading this poem… felt FRESH!!

    Enjoy all the lovely stuff, girl..
    Just drive safe 🙂
