Why is speeding illegal? Wrecking BECAUSE of speeding, I can see. Texas thinks I could magically conjure $240 to pay them for going 80mph in mid July. I CAN’T AFFORD TO KEEP GROUND BEEF IN THE HOUSE ALL MONTH LONG. And I’ve got like two more days to pay them before they send a letter to Arkansas requesting a license suspension and send a warrant for failure to appear. Yeah, they’re not getting their money because I don’t have their money. I have two dollars to my name, no steady job, and a new baby on the way.
Okay, so maybe I shouldn’t have been driving so fast, but in my defense the country road was sparsely populated and I was running low on gasoline and wasn’t sure I was going in the correct direction to reach my paternal grandmother’s house. And I just love the thrill of driving really fast…I would love to drive on the Autobahn someday, or race on a real racetrack.
Creatures–Speeding, my way, with no time to spare, stealing away from that old nightmare. Speeding, speeding, I am stealing against the grain, unrestrained. I’ve invented a different game.
