driving at speed
foot down to the metal
alone on the road

but for

ghostly cows
 in unseen fields
lit only by stars
and a gibbous moon

neon flashes
blue light exposure
tail gate following

into the darkness
an encompassing womb
swallowing you whole

radio playing
late night lullaby
a soft voiced DJ
your only friend

 road never ending
destination unknown
motorway markers
 affording no clue

follow the lines
as cats eyes blink
stay awake

it's later than you think
