The Fast Lane (poem and painting)

The Fast Lane
watercolour on paper

What do you see in the fast lane?

zipping images through a window pane

faceless people who have no names

you don’t see anything in the fast lane

What do you feel in the fast lane?

daring, challenge, anger, pain

fast and flowing, you can’t complain

there’s only stress when you’re in the fast lane

What do you get in the fast lane?

heat, smoke, dust, nothing to gain

excitement, tension, a driver’s bane

rest is eternal in the fast lane
