I've Known Too Many People

I’ve known too many people
who’ve slammed into the wall.
Drove their way to wreck and ruin
pedal to the floor.
Couldnt stop to check the map
knew the way they had to go
would be littered with the lives
of those they loved and didnt.

I take the turns so carefully,

dip my toe so tentatively
into the waters of the past
wary of the bodies
that reach out to drag me back.
Mustnt look left or right
shooting glances
at what’s coming up behind.
Their memories race past me
faster than the future racing up towards me.
