Driving to Work with Britney Spears

By | 3 February 2024

I don’t care what anyone says,
I’ve had to pee so bad in traffic
I’ve pulled over in the breakdown lane
where the courtships of small animals go on
in the ravines. I’ve been so full of shit
I’ve had to turn the radio on
just to drown me out. But I like
her voice. I like her signature
low note, that guttural thing she does
that sounds like pushing. Like she’s
climbed down into a ravine and she’s squatting
there among the animals, pushing.
It could be a bowel movement, it could be
a baby. It could be a second baby. Baby, baby,
it’s very effective, whatever it is, and I don’t
care what you think because I’m happy
singing along on my way to work,
my thumbs keeping time on my steering wheel,
my head full of bullshit and beauty and Britney
Spears pushing and singing and making babies.
