Random Poem:

Nihilism at its Best

This rain-slicked road
forgives no one.
This is, after all,
nihilism at its best.
I suppose I have no one to blame
but myself.
The incessant rain
drives away any second thoughts.
I drift over the middle divider,
as the moon turns away its face.
This is, after all,
at its best.
