The Eyes Grow Dark and Inward

          (a driver's side view)


Eyes flash and scan one another

Hope to grow dark and inward together

As the action mounts and the interaction

Never stops.

 

What do you get, the wiper rhythm?

The new car smell, tinted glass, chrome?

The long oh of its OM, or the potential to  
Back out, either side?

The lady is so Christian, and blue as a dance
She thinks I am all hands.
Why a precious press forward, it's not a limo
The occasion primo, afterthought condenses
steam,  the aims of the aimless, less amiable

In the end.

 

The preamble of love is to flash and scan

The hope is to go inward to a private dark

Where the landscape is more than just the

Lay of the land.

 

With watches trained on a nervous vigil

An insidious giggle reinvents intrigue and

The languor that follows, after the all between

Is Dead Sleep…

 

Electric ninth chords play from the dash

Heightened wire finds the unwritten alignments

And every simultaneous planet shining.

 

A memory of first love grows darker within us

A hail Mary moment in the car beep of being.
