Drive It Down

So.  My homeboy Lance over at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog has started a new writing challenge called the 100 Word Song.  It pretty much goes like this.  He gives the song, you give 100 words.  Ms. Machina likey dat.  This week the song was Idioteque by Radiohead.  I must admit, I don't think I have ever heard a single song by Radiohead.  But it's definitely a groovy tune to write to.  So, here's my first contribution to the 100 Word Song challenge.  Yay me!  I like things that make me say "Yay me!"

Don't dare me, boy.  Don't dare.  Dare me not.  I'll drive it, drive it black, window's down, to the ground with my eyes closed.  You dare me, boy?  Move the wind between her fingers, change the scene on the edge of a lash in her eye.  I'll drive it down, like you asked.  With the window down.  Don't call it free, but I say it ain't chained.  She can't roll where the rubber don't go.  But oh yeah, she'll move the wind.  Move it right, move it down.  Shame the fingers caught in her throat, shame the lash falling down.

  4. It actually was stream of consciousness. I was fresh off the one-minute writer prompt and it didn't dawn on me until after I linked up that I could have spent a bit more time on it. Live and learn.

  5. Nicely done, like the style of writing for a short piece.
