Get You

How to live like money
won’t get you tomorrow.
Headlights: the car’s
turning to block
you in the driveway.
You’re not scared
but you stare
when your face ages;
you change to lose touch.
Money getting you,
getting money.
Change doesn’t have
choice. Get inner.
Got here the same way.
Light off the plains,
scanned the plains.
