Overdrive






















Out on the freeway
speeding nowhere fast,
windshielded future,
rearviewed past.
Stopping for gas,
numbers fly at the pump,
Guess I'm OD-ing
on all this junk.
My next fix costs
more than I've got,
I should be in rehab,
not running so hot.
At the last rest stop,
no need for alarm,
just easing the needle
into my arm.
