'63 Chevy Impala


Racing down the freeway in a classic Chevy Impala, proud to be the owner at the wheel.
Girls looking sideways at the beauty of the car, all wanting to get a ride, none daring to ask.
Wanting to be asked by the gentle owner sitting there, cruising down Central with pride seated next to him, waiting to be expressed in verbal praise.
Showing off a little more, getting pulled over by a cop.

    i guess the gentile owner must have taken his eyes off the road too long; too much girl-watching. i like the last line especially. thanks for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

    They don't make them like that anymore! Five or six people could fit in the backseat alone, not to mention the trunk! I miss the days when you could sit on a car without denting it. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,

Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
