Boethius, With the Top Down

(for John Q. Climate-Change)
———————————
on the interstate
doing 95 mph
blasting Boethius, with the top down,
is not the same
as blasting Motley Crüe
with the top down,
doing 95 mph
on the interstate,
though The Consolations of Philosophy
might be a better long-term prescription
for handling the world as it is
than one writ in the jittery script
of a Dr. Phineas Y. Feelgood;

but who really needs
a long-term prescription
for tomorrows
of a different persuasion
when that drop-top’s down,
and you’re humming at 95 mph,
along that never-ending,
never-changing,
make-ya-feel-all-right
inter

state.
