Mysterious Car On Desolate Road

I looked out my bedroom window
it was late at night--a car had stopped on
the desolate country road
running in front of my house
300 E
Headlights on
Just sitting there
For ten minutes or more
Very mysterious
scare inducing
What's he doing?
On his phone?
Drinking a beer?
Smoking a joint?
Planning a crime?
a murder?
a murder spree?
Maybe he's just lost…
No, that can't be it/too simple
after an agonizing wait
slowly the car starts moving again
gravel crunching in a menacing manner under the tires
red evil eyes tail lights
gradually receding into the dark
shutting their eyes

I don’t sleep well that night
