The Long Drive

Night Drive

She’ll roll the windows down
To merely try to stay awake:
She’ll drive out caring little
How much time it’s going to take

She’ll jolt her heart with energy
To keep it going on:
Into the night’s enormity
And forward to the dawn

Her chances, she cannot compute
No trending, no improving —
The only tactic she employs
Is this: just keep on moving
