    what now
    gas pedal like taste of wine
    fast and smooth
    beside the roadway grass grows
    white farmhouse and red barn always rest
    in green pastures horses graze
    leaves grow in spring

    glimpses of life are momentary
    always the need to pass by
    rush into waiting traffic jams
    speeding either north or south
    away from sunrise or sunset
    stop for gas and talk politics
    maybe a bagel to go

    80 mph makes up time
    gives minutes back to morning or evening
    travel robs the traveler of energy and life
    a place without place where time is doubled
    were sugary gas station coffee
    is a bandage not big enough to cover
    a wound oozing time into sunset

      This is a poem that I think everyone should read in their free time. The detail and information within every sentence is perfectly placed. I've never seen anyone write a poem about driving and being out on a road before, so nicely done. I couldn't have put it into better words, great writing.
