Take never—forever
          for my speed limit simulator
               knows the scenic route
                 & t[his lead foot
        believes this
                       is a race,
                  thinks death is a form
                              of traffic police

          I’m due for all kinds of
                        emission tests …
                            By the by/

                        in my tire-fire dreams
          I’m huffing carbon dioxide streams
                                  escaping my captors at last
