HYDROPLANE/PANIC ATTACK

Tear droplets gather, drown the road
Water stands and thinning wheels dote
The steered steel becomes erratic
Progression in a ditch, static
 
Managed chemicals are shaken
Imminent crash, mental break-in
Spinning out slings the pragmatic
The psychic seeps to somatic
 
The ignored signs bite violently
Panic steals the air silently
The snuffed attack is ecstatic
Painful, misread as dramatic
 
Tear droplets gather, drown the road
Progression in a ditch, static
