Rear View Mirror

Background soundtrack
sets the stage
guitar slides
across the room
drum beat
with the pounding
of a heart
gun to hand
hand to chest
stars shoot
across the sky
with every breath
that is taken
looms a thief
in the night
life circles around
without pause
or reflection
a clean slate
second chances
become novel
like a trinket
held for ransom
dangling indiscriminately
from the rear view mirror
of some hijacked
junked up transport ~
