Speed to Sleep

The grey strip of asphalt slips beneath me
A satin edged endless blanket
Side to side
My tires sway gentle as pillows

And I am a punch drunk sailor
Sailing into the familiar unfamiliar
Warm to woozy
Rumple wide alert tumble fast asleep

Repeat in a rock-the-cradle rhythm
Slow weaving buffeted by metal chariots
Speed to slumber
Dream streaming home
