freestyle sonnet #087: PRELUDE TO JUNE 27TH (RIP SCREW)

All I been doing is jamming Screw, windows down 
on slipping transmission minivan, taking long 
ways home, never no interstates, crawling through town 
at snail's pace, watching the world slink by while siren song 

of molasses chop envelopes interior. 
Screwed of heart - prefer life slowed, playing dominos 
at the park - that syrup-like life's superior. 
Slow-dripping through the minutes so life's freestyle flows 

composes prose that goes well with how Universe 
is. It ain't hard to stop the high-speed direction 
into personalized oblivion - disperse 
path off the planned, off the mundane disaffection, 

disappear into screwed and chopped frame of mind (plus heart), 
since life's beats per minute been limited from start.
