Life Code


those clouds look pretty
though gray and rainy
what's he lookin' at
my fingertips loosely resting
on the steering wheel
the fingertips
of one hand
NOT palms firmly planted
at 10 and 2
what are they
thinking about
can't wait to see her
gotta work on that thing
i have to call him
ugh that heaviness in my
jeez I'm tired
Don't! pick up that phone
the light is yellow
wow! look at him swerve
have to take her to the thing
tonight oh god
i have to reschedule that thing
why am I sad?
