Driving in the Country

I much prefer the city

the bright neon lights

the apartment windows to peek at

the cafes to drive by

the places to point out at

and refer to as the past

never escapes.

I am a city girl

and if you entrap me

by driving in the country

I will think the trees

are magnificent

as you are.

I will breathe in the oxygen

as I breathe in your cologne.

I suppose wherever you

want to drive me

is fine

as long

as you are laying

your hand in my lap

at all the right songs.
