Midas hands, steering wheel
radio playing endless foxtrot.
the dog bobblehead in the acid trip
is headbanging without missing a beat.
the desert mirage, lack of sleep
desolate heart, unoccupied back seat.
going in circles, warren, adrift
misplaced memories, unrevealed candor.
illusion of touch, artificial gold
rust and dust, – two Harpies are circling aloft.
veer, zeitnot, deceitful pothole
arrhythmic heartbeat, stench of pity, naught.
unfolding night sky, in a jiff
dismay, worn out mind, vacant lot.
