A Lonely Drive

Dark rainy night-
a car cruises on a deserted road.
Wipers try to swish away the blur.
Stereo plays rock n roll.
Deep valleys await on narrow turns.
Car slows, a crack from above
lights up a white clad figure.
Long black hair falling over the face
sits cross-legged in the middle of the road, unmoved.
The car races ahead screeching right through.
The figure rotates it's head and stares-
blood flows from the long teeth,
it's laughter chilling the air.
Rear-view mirror reflects the pale green eyes-
look frightened seeing no one inside.
Screams but music blares on.
