high beams







You flick your lights at me?
You think these are my brights?
No, no, no:
If I were on high beams
You would see nothing
But the retina-destroying brilliance
Of twin suns in supernova
A radiance so profound
That the shadows it casts
Tremble in perpetual aftershock.

Thanks!

I love the high beams on my car. It makes all the roadsigns glow, so the air looks filled with mystical, bright-colored symbols.

My old car had weak headlights. This one has really strong headlights. I am at risk of becoming an asshole in this car. Must .... resist .... temptation

Ouch! for the retina-destroying brilliance.

It is a faery car that comes with the injunction never to use the high beams around mortals.

People have composed music based on that trembling.

Now THAT is what one ought to do with road rage!

"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me?"
Travis Bickle is no match for Asakiyume.

Magnificent. If rules allow it, it should be published.

Sue Charlton: [cautiously] He's got a knife.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: [chuckles] That's not a knife.
[He pulls out a large bowie knife]
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: THAT's a knife.

THAT's a poem.

The modern version of Do you bite your thumb at me?, clearly.

Lovely poem.

It's a new feeling for me! Our old car had very pathetic headlights.
