Overdrive

Driving at night
black road
black night
headlights attempt
illumination.
Is it enough light?
Drive on -- blindly.
My body feels frozen
--disembodied--
I am alone,
trying to trust the
other souls driving this
night-shrouded route.
My legs are gone.
Only the pressure of the pedal and my hands on the wheel exist.
My companion stirs
"Are you ok?"
I laugh,
paranoia ebbs.
