WASTED WHEELS
(6/16/11)


he pulled up
beside me
at
a red light

driving
a black
BMW
two seater
convertible

he was
an old
grizzled
gray haired
fuck

about
my age

he seemed
amiss
in that shiny
little
sports car

oh
he had probably
worked many years
invested wisely
etc
to purchase
and enjoy
such a
ride

still
he looked
out of
place

like a
pig
in a
swimming
pool

a
20 something
careless kid
should be
violating
that vehicle

bikinied
girlfriend
laughing
next
to him

stereo
blaring

speeding

rolling through
stop signs

changing lanes
on a whim

biting life
in the
ass

that would
make me
smile

the light
changed
and I put
the dented Chevy
into gear
easily
pulling
out in front
of the Beemer

I turned up
my own music
and watched
him fade
in the rear
view
