this was written a while ago...freedom too comes with restraint

Provisional Dynamite

Government organizations
are always so busy, with
so many ants running
around in the anthill of the office.
At least the sunís warm.
And here I am in the passengerís seat,
not the driverís seat where my
behind should be parked.
So I have the flattened plastic squares,
White and red, Crosses and Flags,
Letters and Warning Signs.
A breeze once the unsurety was over.
Your neckpiece didnít work, since I
didnít give you the chance to gloat by
wearing it around my neck,
hanging pendant on the adjoining strips.
Itís not as if Iím going to drive
as far as I want to,
past the outposts and into the wide open spaces
where all you can hear is the sound of your
own voice, singing along to the favourite
tunes playing in your head.
I guess Iíll need the ignition key.
