Neopoet Random Challenge #7...

No! I've missed the last fuel stop!
Eager to make time, I blew it
Oh, I hope that I have enough to make it
Perhaps I will, if I drive steady
Okay, just take it slow
Easy does it, ignore
Those butterflies in my stomach
Dot the I's
Call on your inner reserves
Omit any doubts and
Make sure the desert doesn't get you

Very exact.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

Every creative challenge stirs the innate abilities in us.

But what did you mean dot all the I's? Interesting how even on paper (e-paper?) your panic comes through.

I guess, what I meant, was to try and think of anything that might help the situation. Do I remember how many MPG I get with this car, do I remember how far have I come, etc. Glad that the panic came through! Thanks for stopping by. ~ Geez.
