Sangre Real

a 10 second car.
Dom and Mia, original blood,
O’Connor the interloper,
Turned compatriot.
True love binds.
Two hearts wrapped in a throbbing nitro-soaked circle of melting rubber.
Is Mia or Dom the consort?
It is not about street-racing,
It is not about different crews,
It is not about hijacking trucks through the silky siren song of turbo-charged
precision driving,
True love,
Sangre Real.
