’89 in 99 ’06 in 14

’89 in 99

synchronized lights of the west adoption city
to living-driving here
up Sidney Street madness

red to green
to red

while on Loyalist
the highway turns left trying to make it accident free

99 to 09

no farther but more distance
and back again
full circle and revelations
and pockets


09 to present

presently still
you and me
back down the highway
back up the Belleville madness of clouds –
drive quickly
into the country and leave it there

13 or 15

years baby

drive me
i’ll drive you
i’ll drive you

on the radio is the uneducated local madness of AM open lines
and silly Toronto politics on the FM dial

all that matters is right here beside us
the smile inside me seeing you

’89 to present terms

driving an ’06 dodge….
