Loud, Louder, Loudest

Originally posted 1/7/2012.

Some days
are just one
turbocharged
evocation
after another;

then there are the ones
where you sit around
wondering why
it’s not one
of the other days.

Frankly, I could do with
a few less of
the former
and a lot more of
the latter.

Every moment of every day
doesn’t have to have a point
and I’m tired of getting stuck
and bleeding almost out
because of the ones that do.

Right now, for example,
all I want it the road,
the wide open engine, and
the loud, louder, loudest
three-chord songs;

a day with nothing to escape from,
no reason to be driving that fast
except 
that’s how
loud, louder, loudest songs

sound best.
