The Soapbox Papers

The Soapbox Papers is my two-cents worth.

I am a cross between Tinkerbell and Calamity Jane.

I didn't say
I was easy to love.
You didn't say
you wanted a paint-by-numbers kit

and all in all
it was zip to zip,
zero to sixty in four seconds flat

the flashing lights
the ticket
the fine we paid

Now I'm back on the highway again
only a bit more paranoid
but glad to be in motion again

one eye on the traffic ahead,
one eye on the rear view mirror

hoping there is still enough gas
to make it home
over the bridge.
