Teenage Driver

Teeth clenched in the back seat.
Music blasting so loud you
can’t hear the words you speak.
Teenager driver trying to impress.
Momma trying to stay calm and not go into cardiac arrest.
Trying to resist the back seat driver defense.
Letting them learn calmly and not be a complete mess.
Knuckles gripping the sides of the seat so tight.
Literally loosing all color now turning white.
Stoplight turns abrubtly red.
Car comes to a screeching halt but at least were not dead.
Now arriving at our point of interest.
Just in time to get calm for the ride home so they don’t need assistance.
