reclaiming Glasgow

in the car
she loves to ride
craning her head
from side to side
pleased by this country’s
wide open spaces
& the expressions she sees
on other drivers’ faces

for another adventure
she is ready
watching his beloved hands
hold the steering wheel steady
as they ride through the rain
on their way to Glasgow
Springsteen encourages them
from the radio

it’s overcast in Alba
today there’s not much sun
but this doesn’t spoil her mood
she’s not deterred from having fun
safely seated next to the person
whose presence is most dear
hypnotized by Scottish skies
& a road ahead that’s clear

once Glasgow was synonymous
with much stress & pain
a solicitor made a mistake
& her life headed down the drain
thankfully she’s entered
into a happier season
so every day she thanks God
for the judge who saw reason

thus for this new adventure
she is more than ready
glancing at her boyfriend’s hands
as they hold the wheel steady
she sings along with Springsteen
on the car radio
rocketing through the rain
she’s set to reclaim Glasgow
