Way home from Tony’s, eggs and Halava in a plastic bag, a brilliant moment exploded,
a Toyota ripped down the street, screeched and ejected a passenger, a frantic fat man undoing his pants
wearing the expression you know, he is frenzy want and need, one that left the car running
frantically panting, as if in a trance, I just took it.
I was only 15, and I don’t know where it came from, this conception
that rules don’t mean anything, and penalty is only consequence, catch me if you can,
I just drove, knowing no one was looking for me, until I abandoned in two blocks adjacent
scampering through bush over fence.
I was free of it, my decision, and I only wonder what I’ve wrought back then,
how much inconvenience, and perhaps pointlessly missed the birth of his son, or some likewise calamity
I’ll never know or care probably, as it shakes out in memory, realize that reality is what you say
that I didn’t really, I wish I had, don’t you?
