I wish my car was purple

Purple CarI was at spur of the moment poetry workshop Tuesday night and we wrote to a prompt randomized by guessing numbers and Freudian slips. Here’s my result, after some light editing.

I wish my car was purple
so it would match your hair,
flying from the passenger seat
as we speed along back roads,
past falling wisteria
and the sun subsides
in the western sky.
