Light Fare Nightmare

You draw a blueprint map
of how I got tangled up in this mess
your side of the progression

On the car ride home
still thinking in terms
of your direction

I follow a motorcycle
onto a narrow bridge
and fall my wide car
right into a lake

The windows stop working
I struggle submerged
my seatbelt locks into a fasten
I watch the water build

I wake up with a startle
to a room full of strangers
hit my head on the low ceiling

and make a joke to entertain them
still cached within the moment
of escaping
