1.
on the way home that night i
just wanted to scream at the
top of my lungs until my throat
was raw and bloody and kept
picturing your body washed in
the red of my brakelights, but
instead i turned my music up
so loud it made my eardrums
buzz and it was all out of key.

2.
i wondered what would happen
if i just let go of the wheel, going
fifty-five miles per hour, what
would happen if i tried to simply
hit dead zero on a dime.

3.
i didn't think i wanted to die but
the next time i looked down, i
realized i'd taken my seatbelt off
and i imagined what it would feel
like to literally fly into a million
pieces and would the people
collecting these bits of me, would
someone find my hand and say,
"look, look how pretty her hands
are; look at that callus on the ring
finger, she must have been a writer,"
but i know that they would simply
say, "i found her hand over here;
she fucking flew fast and far."

4.
at one point someone almost drifted
through their red light, right into
me and i instinctively avoided them
and started crying because the
amount of adrenalin cutting through
me hurt, but also because
i don't think i would have minded
if i had just kept going straight.

5.
and really, i imagined myself crashing
because all i wanted to find out was
if it was you i'd be thinking of in my
last moments.

6.
because then i would know if i still
loved you.
i kept sucking in dry air to sing so i coughed more than anything.
