beginning the day down the highway
blue sky, as evergreen pillars sway
both side, light filters though our way
beautiful drive through winding expressway
both my girlfriend and I play,
beaming, shopping an hour away
busting at the seams, a fun day
buzzing, park my car to spend a full day
bumping against people that pass by
both walking a honeycomb of displays
buying clothes and dining in the nearest Cafe
both tired, we were ready for the highway
bundles in hands, I was in dismay
beginning to panic, how can my brain betray
blank of thought, forgot where the car may
be. I don’t have a fancy remote or x-ray.
blast! I sigh! to set off my car
blazing alarm and locate it at bay
blind, I know it can’t be far, I pray
I’m tired of losing my white car
wandering up and down
trying my key to see which door
it will open.
I must look like a clown
a skill I still have not mastered
nightmares do still haunt me
looking, but never there, stranded
has it been towed without me?
True story. One day after a long shopping day in the big city. I tried my key in four different cars because they all look the same; my friend just laughed at me.
