Maybe, A Story

Image result for dropped car muffler on the side of highway

There must be a story

in the dejected muffler

on the roadside

 

The remaining evidence

of a vehicle faltering

 

Two young men, perhaps,

in a 1990 model Commodore

with just ten bucks

of fuel in the tank,

trying to get home

from pruning vines

 

The spot echoes

with their curses

of frustration

 

And the steps to be taken

to move on

 

Bruised, ruffled grass, tyre tracks

dishevelled metal,

a cigarette butt or two

 

Story past
