a blacktop creed

don't stop.dream of gas pedals pressed by manic bourbon saints burning hot wheels white rushing lines if you must. wear down the treads until your tires are as smooth as them in a formula one road course race. know that the blacktop bears the blood of wanderers, and that every stumble is communion, every rising an ascension.
