Adventures of a Wandering 3rd Eye pt.2

A candid photo taken of me behind the wheel.

Vancouver WA

Finger tips
Loosely wrapped around
The driving wheel
Thick fog erases
The surroundings

Straight edges align 
The beams projected
From the headlights

A cold breeze
Feeds the flare
Of the tip
Of a half smoked cigarette

The road reveals
The soul,
Under the protection
Of a low floating cloud

I tripped over the curb

In the thick fog
That clouded
The Vancouver streets
On New Year's Eve

The foreign streets
Without the trace
Of a familiar face
Voices and noises
Violently battering 
This peaceful escape

Another beer
While burning leaves
On the side streets

I catch myself 
And pick up
A sense of direction

Its time to begin
A rabid goose chase
Without a taxi 
Or map

I found my way into
Another bar
To inhale the vapors
That attacked my chest
So violently

I take a brake,
To escape my fate
Wandering into 
The thickness of the fog
Without explanation
Or destination

I took another glance
Asked for a chance,
Received a dance 
From the girl in my mind

The Fog of Vancouver

      Interesting stuff. Real life experiences have that extra impact. Look forward to more in the series.
