rear view

am i looking over my shoulder in life's rear view mirror

all the time is that what i'm doing

constantly checking out what's

behind me

instead of looking straight ahead

with only a brief glance

backwards e.g. when some monster from the past

breathes down my neck

and i think it's going to

overtake me i'm in motion forward drive

(the wheel's marvelous invention)

as long as i keep my foot

on the gas i'm not in reverse am i

(et cetera) and then the dialog

with myself ends like a tape-recorded message

my voice says to me succinctly

driver you are the driver aren't you

drive the road
