Road Trip

by Ivan Jenson

I kind of
this dance
between us
it doesn't feel
or overly produced
it's like
the nervous
heard in movies
that are not supposed
to be funny
and it makes
me chuckle
as I buckle in
for the short cut
or long ride
I will take
to that
tourist trap
known as
the Big Apple
of your eyes
