In the Back

it's the crunch
when two spaces collide
it's the neck-jerk
the shock
when you know
you've been invaded

from here
in the mirror
she's just a big black
bull bar
zoomed in close
like a nose-to-nose threat

but then
we dismount
and she's just a woman
like me
just a woman
making a mistake

on a Wednesday
afternoon
in her oversized
VW Amarok
and me
in the wrong place

in 2021
