On the Ride

and on the ride 

they saw a castle

miracle-cure baldness billboards

failed mechanic lights

graveyards too long to hold their breath


and on the ride

they talked of the end of everything

promised forever at 78 miles per hour 

debated the tax benefits of marriage

and who would get the oversized ottoman

in the event of a split


and on the ride

they drove just fast enough

to make the past blur

and the future feel

a few headstones
