gravel roads [backdated sept 14th]

battered car
no air con
decisions to be made
crack the windows
building up arm
strength as you roll
hay and cow pats
on the breeze
how they manage
to keep up
when you’re going
at a hundred k
or more
old car it may be
but in the woodhill
sunshine blaring
like the radio playing
horse with no name
kicking up that
musty dust
rushing so suddenly
test out those arms
close that window
before we choke
