Backseat Lullaby. Brake lights sending me to sleep tonight. And carhorns are screeching and I’m reaching out. For travel maps and memories hidden in compartments while my knees press against the passenger seat. A fearless foe with painted cracks to cover pavement wreckage and debris. Then me, a pothole mind, my thoughts can’t fill the empty ones that I see ahead. Remember when you said Yellow lines will lead your life right. I’m taking off tonight. Florescent greens with reds and golds seep into my long-lost loving eyes.I try to see them blur, a fast paced world passing as I leave this place behind. We’ll go nowhere this time. Yellow lines lead left and right. I think I’m lost tonight. A sunroof and star ceiling. A shelter and new home will come. But for now let me live in the backseat. Remember when you said Yellow lines will lead your life right. I’m finally free tonight.
