4.

Don’t ever slow down

That’s how I was taught

To drive

When stoned or drunk

Or both

Don’t you ever slow down

I never hit anyone

But the shadows on the road

The ghosts the keep across

Trying to get somewhere

Else

Women and cats

They all have the same expression

When my car passes through them

Not shock

Just recognition of familiarity

And anticipation waiting

For me to walk with them
