PostSubject: Asleep in the passenger seat   Sat May 31, 2014 8:02 pm

Asleep in the passenger seat
the windows are a blur to me
the sky is whirling like the sea
radio towers in retreat

Asleep in the passenger seat
inhaling ventilation fumes
I won't die but I won't wake soon
chained to my chair by evening heat

Asleep in the passenger seat
down slanted stairs of limey rock
pelted by pebble fiends amok
underneath an earthen sheet

Asleep in the passenger seat
as well as on the other shore
I, a multiplicate snore
at once in each place that we meet

Asleep in the passenger seat
old Charon groans about his back
and makes his slow, tangential tack
across Marielisa Street

Asleep in the passenger seat
because James cursed my dollar tree
and halved my only salary-
I've got faith but he doesn't see it

Asleep in the passenger seat
hitch hiking on the telephone lines
up here I cannot read the signs
but I feel an electric beat

Asleep in the passenger seat
we passed right by the Parthenon
but all the ancient folk had gone
to make room for Pearl Harbor's fleet

Asleep in the passenger seat
a long way yet till I can rest
let it be said I stood the test
sleeping in the passenger seat!

Happy to leave this Kansas wheat,
brew me some tea and make it sweet
I'd kiss my Texas woman's feet
but I'm sleeping in the passenger seat!
