Driving in my car...
                                       Silver bullet streaks
                                       down barren highway
                                       blurring rows of stoic pines
                                       as dusk stretches shards
                                       of lingering light into
                                       elongated shadow

                                       Black rubber on pavement
                                       hypnotic hum hurtling me
                                       onward to some
                                       distant destination
                                       between sinking sun
                                       and climbing moon

                                       Torrid fire and pale peace
                                       face off at the
                                       changing of the guard:
                                       yesterday and tomorrow,
                                       past and future,
                                       two opposing orbs
                                       spill the secrets of my life
                                       across the bleeding horizon

                                       I squeeze the wheel with
                                       sweaty palms,
                                       scan the contour of this
                                       darkening road,
                                       send a supplication
                                       to the Sovereign One:

                                       Will you navigate tonight?
