which isnt to say they go to plan, they never do that
but sometimes people are going the same direction as you in the freeway
and maybe one of em looks over at you like “wanna go fast?” and they floor it
and you catch up, flooring it also, and together you speed through the desert in the rain
the freedom is supernatural because most of the time everyones going so damn slow
and when you look over at the person to your right they’re texting
and when you look over at the person on the left they can barely see over the wheel
last night i was so nervous that i became early. i was nervous in a way that required chocolate milk.
turned out i was being crazy again. turned out everyone wanted to scream across the plains.
turned out i wasnt alone.
