I pull up to the intersection
and I close my eyes
and press the pedal to the floor.
this is it.
I reach down slowly and unbuckle my seat belt,
as I hear a loud scraping noise
of another vehicle against my door.
my eyes are closed and time no longer exists,
every second is lasting an hour,
I no longer know where I am.
I sharply jerk the wheel to the right
and I feel myself crash into another vehicle
and I begin to roll.
I feel the ground above my head,
I feel the air fill between me and the seat,
I feel the dirt and debris and loose change and torn and frayed resumes and everything from my pockets fill the air around me.
I felt life stop and everything stood still.
for a moment I was infinite,
this is the closest feeling i’ll ever have to achieving my dreams of being in space and the universe.
after that is a blur, it all happens so fast but my mind stays where
I am floating around in my debris and loose change
i’m my own universe,
and i’m finally at peace
scattered across the road
I hope I die in my sleep.
