i swear i’ll remember his license plate until the day i die

two tons of speeding steel

swerved across black asphalt

and white lines

and yellow

and I had words

so many words

fuck you

you son of a cunt

the best part of you dried on your mother’s thigh

and she should have swallowed the rest

you bitch cock sucking motherfucker

screamed out of a window pane and

as he blew through the red light

I finally ran out of words.

I drove over the end of the English Language

and witnessed the wasteland, the psychic abyss

I stared deep into the darkness there where

there are no words left

no meanings

no sense

no communication

just a vessel popping apoplexy

as eyes bulge and go dark

from a stroke of bad luck.

the wheel pulled hard to the right and

two tons of speeding steel

wrapped themselves and me

around a concrete pole

with a dead bulb at the top.
