Poetry 101 Rehab: Getaway

i hate driving
but it’s the fastest way
to leave you behind.

no – not the fastest
but certainly the quietest.
driving far enough
means i don’t see you in
the rearview mirror.

and if i drive fast
enough
you’ll lose sight of me
among the crowd.

look away
while i leave
and don’t follow.

(the good thing about driving
is this:
it makes forgetting easier)
