Starlite Speedway

from by Kites In Space



// at the starlite speedway as the yellow light fades / the break-neck pace at which they start their race / it’s a two-stroke motorcade / she has a key pressed to her chest / it’s teeth chew up her skin / a parting gift before he left to give him luck to win / at the starlite speedway / the pit crew celebrates as they come around the last bend / the checkered flag waves as they hurtle through the end / but lo / look at him go through the barricade / the lights are flashing through the night through dust and steam and flame / at the starlite speedway //
