roadtrip car

There’s only so much

disco you can take, even

dear Donna Summer.

All other cars on

the road are there to test your

patience, block your way.

Distance looks shorter

on a map, time goes faster

when you hide the clock.

You’ll remember you

forgot paper towel when your

dog pukes in the back.

That journey stuff is

bullshit when you’re still four hours

from destination.

Whining and scratching

at doors is the dog version

of “Are we there yet?”
