Police Cruiser

Taillights
illuminate
mud-covered

sneakers
as they tear sod
time slows to an

underwater crawl
you dig your heels in
clench a porch chair

hoist it, hurl it
rejoice as the legs
scatter like

speargun harpoons
across asphalt
soaked in moonlight

rearview mirrors
fog in the breath
of mischief

muddy sneakers
tear across
lawns of strangers

the only siren
rattles from
your lungs.
