Flash in the Pan: Car

damn carAlways in the damn car.

The moment traffic would stiffen to a dead stop or seconds after we passed “No gas for 100 miles” signs on endless road trips to visit her parents in the middle of god-forsaken nowhere she would dredge up topics that should be dead and buried.

Why couldn’t she leave it alone?

She never did.

And probably never will.

A steam-powered train of accusations, interrogations, and bitter jabs at a life she despised but I refused to give up.

Tears and sobs always followed icy glares and biting commentary.

My life.

Life in the damn car.

  2. This is absolute perfection. Love it.
