Skidding in slo-mo

He was an angry buck out to prove
his folks were wrong
but too old to act that way
no matter how much he pissed her off
he was just cocky enough
to believe she’d be back

She drove four states
to get to that hot-headed prick
who had driven her mad
what she’d never admit
his smile enough
to knock her wheels off the tracks

ignoring her rebellious heart
never doing what it was told
if it was her mama
or her best friend, or her ex
or even the professor
who felt her up during finals–
she knew better
