songs you sing

putting together the mix tape

songs to sing to

out on the highway

hearing the tires hum

up ahead the rain clouds

behind a clear sky

as you hit play

& this one doesn’t fit

this one for another time

out on the interstate

mebbe this one

the next

as you wonder what happened

to your sense of taste?

window wide open

as the miles unwind

stopping for coffee & gas

scanning the racks for something new

everything you love

you’ve already played

& the hours roll on

as all those things that meant

so much yesterday

have all upped vanished gone away

in your rear view

the person who cared

followed the rules

is not this one

rolling on
