swiped the keys,
again
joy riding the Mercedes after school
Dad away on business
again
how will he ever know anyway?
he’s distracted by work, lovers, something
radio blasting…the old man does have a great system
speeding along
running late
AND the stop sign
taking it on the driver’s side
lost the taillight too…

“license and registration please”
Daddy? Where are you?
