highbeams under the bridge

ribs became my heart’s worst enemy
        suddenly,
      the world held a tumultuous shade
           I cannot be without you for a second
               where you exist, eternity stretches
        & have you witnessed the length,
               oh my lord, it’s endless


     I damn near crashed my car
      into concrete without paying attention
          to the road
             there was a swarm, there,
        in my addled brain, noisily shaking
     I death gripped the steering wheel
     against the pavement

 [ as a rattlesnake stirred
                     to fix its unsettled/lightning eyes
                                on me ]
