Steady your pulse
Ready your mind
Seduce the muse
Focus your eyes

Accelerate
Separate
Keep your speed
Set the pace

Outlast
Outmaneuver
Leave it all
To dust
In your opponent’s
Coughing lungs

Brake for nothing but love and sharp corners
Cut a mother fucker’s expectations right off
Use every shadow and reflection within sight
Hold the wheel like a fine woman’s thighs

Don’t look back
Don’t ever look back
There’s nothing waiting
Nothing worth saving

Accelerate
Separate
Keep your speed
Set the pace

At every stop sign, red light
Set, reset, and ride

Die with dignity
Drive yourself passionately

– Jason Brain, 2013
