2010 summer poetry surrender

by Andrea Janov

This is the first

ride home

I ever enjoyed.

We leave

over the George Washington Bridge

drive through darkness

surrounded     by lights

the bridge   :   the city

in the rearview mirror

he stares   through   the windshield

his hair hangs in his eyes

I push   :   play

Cheap Trick:  I Want You to Want Me

sit Indian-style

back against the passenger door

eyes closed

my hair thrashing      in the wind.
