Standard (Stick)
is a little different
of a driving experience
than automatic is.
But you still
have to turn the wheel
when cornering,

...and a car is still a car.

I change lanes
when I change my mind.
I may use the turn signal,
or I may not.
It's my call.
It's my car.
I'm doing the driving,
...make up your own mind.

If you're in another lane
and flip me off in a rage,
I'll follow you to your
last drop of gas.
and then...

If you're nice,
I'll wave to you,
...and tip my hat.

Convertibles are a little
bit different of a
driving experience
than are hardtops.
It's best to put
the top up
when it rains,

...and it rains.

...just bein' Bluesy

It's in "Dark poetry", but it brought smiles to me, because I caught the intimacy between you and the car, something I know of. I love to drive and I don't like automatic change.

A convertible in the rain is like a fish out of water

I greatly enjoyed this, though maybe distractedly I noticed a hue of loneliness.

Great write, Max.

Thank you once more for taking time to not only read, but to look deeper into the writing.

My confession to 'metaphorizing' "Driving With Bluesy"may be a bit lame, but I just can't help myself. In conversations, much of what I speak is often ambiguous to the listener while seeming clear to myself.

Perhaps an analyst could be of some use to me.

Thanks again.

...just bein' Bluesy
