Life drags by in a bucket seat.
Monday screaming Tuesday through an open window,
the wind whips weekday sequels through your
when the sun goes down: a total eclipse
of the mundane blacks out the memories
as gravity forces a hold around your chest
at 120 miles per hour.
Do it fast. Do it furious.
Lines were meant to be crossed;
barriers built to be broken.
Another world comes to life.
