My Blog Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo #10 – Back Streets

NaPoWriMo #10 National Poetry Writing Month


Back Streets

jealousy rages

fuel burns hot

fingers trip over worn numeric touch pads

voice mail

no answer

bed not slept in

my overnight

was your daytime

to do what you wished

beep beep beep

sanitation truck blocks much progress


is how i feel


cherry cola covered steel house on wheels

where can you be?

i’m following oil slicked streets

on your trail honey

grand prix racers have nothing on me

rounding corners

chasing curbs

scaling concrete

but who am i in pursuit of?

you were gone a long time ago

slowing down



music volume escalating

neighbors alert to new chick on the block

curtains move slightly

gas pedals stick

i race toward home

white flag up
