putrid and magic

When you were running
along that freeway to no place
I passed beside you
and my motor idled
just long enough to see your face
translucent and tragic
putrid and magic
you were everything I wanted.

You were
distant and vacant
dislodged and awakened
way before your time
too early to take it
couldn’t start, stop or make it
you were everything to me.

When you were a journey
you were miles and days too early
and I was waiting there for you
white lines kept you straightest
you kept moving; didn’t waste it
it was everything to you

and you

you were running off down that road

you were crazier than this town

and you

you were everything to me

putrid and magic.
