i sped down the highway

i sped down the highway
standing in my kitchen

my heart
a crash test dummy’s head bouncing off the windshield

phone in hand
a ghost escaped the teakettle

the ringtone
layered sirens from emergency vehicles

your name
strobing lights from a police car

phone dropped to the floor
waves across the lake surface
