highway low light

highway 1

heil vapour trace taxi cabs
with haunted hooks where thumbs
once hushed,

easing melt of tire tread,
rubber stench, simplex of
best friction,

wheezing truck-stop engine strain,
thrust far past proper
iron lung ‘flate,

litter fingers garnish fringe
of damned drifter
interstate.
