stroke of adversity sprung
from a brush loaded
with layers and layers and seasons of painted brightness,
numerous vehicular numerals,
suddenly torn from their nestled velocities
suddenly (tragically) set on a trajectory towards
a terminus of jeering concrete!
Varney Speedway’s corner four
(sharpest in the country)
is a boundary defined:
experience as enjoyed and/or suffered by
the driver of a Durham race car,
making her mark on the whirled.
