Red car round and round
Posted on 04/08/22 02:35am
Aldeburgh. About 2am.
B&B just off a roundabout.
Wake up to car screeching around and around the roundabout.
Gotta be boys having their fun.
Is it ever girls that do that?
The car moves on, thrill depletion on the 5th round.
I drift off only to hear a car heading toward the roundabout.
about the 3rd round I open my curtains and look to see a red car...
and the smoke from burning rubber,
the loud screeching.
They move on, having made some point, or no point.
Or who cares?
Perhaps it's a girl, peeved about her lower than average grades.
Or a dog hell bent on creating havoc.
Howling like a human.
Or an old person celebrating the letter from the queen,
All shot to hell on heroine, and bank notes spilling from the windows.
Or a kid lacking imagination.
A roundabout can do that to a kid.
World seems funny at the minute.
All bobbly and serious funny.
I listened to a story of a lifelight gone
just yesterday, from a delicate soul.
Broke my heart.
And the red car, round and round.
