Mush

Posted in villanelle by maggie on 2009/05/16

From here on through, the road is all downhill -
sixty nine more like this, my mind'll be mush.
But let's let go. Some wrecks are worth the thrill.

I'm bone dry empty, allegedly you've had your fill,
with our shit sitting out there stinking ready to flush.
From here on through, the road is all downhill,

our brakes gone crippled, steering throwing up ill,
the pavement slick with black ice, hail and slush.
But let's let go. Some wrecks are worth the thrill.

You've done this drop before, you know the drill,
you know that inertia where everything goes hush -
from here on through, the road is all downhill.

We may not climb as high again, yet still
I'd meet back in a flash, goddamn what a rush!
But let's let go. Some wrecks are worth the thrill.

So gas it to the floor, lover, if you will -
we've no dreams left we haven't longed to crush.
From here on through, the road is all downhill -
But let's let go. Some wrecks are worth the thrill.
