neutral

i am going nowhere
sitting in neutral,
angrily pumping the gas

frustrated my steering
is so unresponsive
and wond’ring how long this could last

i will not shift back into gear,
for that would take too long
i’d rather whine while sitting here
listening to pointless songs

and always changing
stations til
the battery runs dead

distracted, caught
in neutral by
the poisons in my head
