Seventy-five miles per hour.

You'd think it'd be enough.

But no, you're feeling tough,

Invincible.

One car length for every ten.

I thought we all learned it when

We were sixteen years old

As our frontal lobe

Was still developing.

Habituated to the speed,

Do you really need

to drive so close?

On the verge of death.

You ride the edge.

No turn signal or seatbelt.

If you crash, what will be felt?

Pain.

And Regret.
