“Jalopy Jamboree” – Makati, 30 March 2017

riding
through the
old streets
without a
care
in the
world
fleeing the
shadows
of days
past
at top
speed.

step on
the gas
and run
full throttle
to leave
it all
behind:
your fears
your demons
your nightmares
your dread –
let them
bite
the dust,
leave them
high and
dry
and surge
into tomorrow
with hope
with light.
