“Philosophy in the Car”



Hours in a box on wheels   
Could play out soundlessly   
With each of us plugged     
Into our own online world   

Instead   
Music pushes our pulses   
Into unison   
And we philosophize   
About Life   
With a capital “L”    

Our Dreams and Doubts   
Dance on the dashboard   
As we   
Pick apart     
Cognitive dissonance     
With science instead of faith   
And create Peace on Earth     

Time distorts     
Into only the here-and-now   
Or tunnels down into our pasts   
Or spirals outward to What Will Be
