so
the new tires
(not the retreads we nearly collided with)
kept us
& the van from becoming
a foggy mountain breakdown
     like in the old days
unless you're considering
everything else you witnessed
including the crazy-ass drivers
with too much texting
under their 
     too fat thumbs
     called goal or success
          oriented tools
even as the roadside grew
into a hangman's knot
     there will always be enough rope
     to wrap every present 
     in time for christmas

and the big & small rigs
& roadways
hell bent
are nothing
if not the doorway
of the empire
keeping every eye & nose
tied like a ring
for the unfathomable energy shortage
tomorrow
or the next day
     & all the armies (not of god but of profit)
     standing ready 
     to pounce any inkling
     suggesting 
          another way
