photon

the light
darted out between
the slender trunks
lining the small
one and a half
lane country road
aesop rock was
rapping about a
thousand virtues
kicking the same
bucket like
chinatown turtles
and i was one
with the cosmos
racing like a
single photon
unerringly straight
into the cardiac
stutter of a near
panic attack
lost in the music
invisibly tethered
to the pickup
cruising in front
and blissfully
unaware of the
world around me
almost weightless
as the suspension
shifted along with
the awkward roadway
driving too fast
directly alongside
my empty mannequin
the flesh golem
carrying my mind
