Magpie Tales: Suspended

like a flapjack bought at a highway store
undressed from plastic on a flat top
and ejected at a reststop
I found freedom to cruise

crushed by second hand truckers on table tops
numbed by the candy I had to suck
leftover from someone’s pockets
I had to choose

barefoot on route 66
if I make it to the west coast
before 5 o’clock
you can have my ass

San Fransisco’s Golden Gate
on the back of a Harley Davidson
or maybe it was all a dream
flushed down a toilet at the rest stop

another coffee at the counter
another evening wasted almost masturbated
in this small town that’s just a dot
on a map at an old egg yoke pitstop

    Excellent write! My favorite so far this week…you grabbed me at flapjack…

  2. Ah.. you have found you way here as well.. This smells Kerouac .. the road … but does it even matter if you reach the Golden Gate..?

Play - will tap the ball back!
