Treasure Island

Susan Lacovara

(1963 / New York)

Stalled By The Side Of His Road


Overheated

Stalled by the side of his road

I thought I had enough fuel

To complete the ride

Get as far away from his high octane words

Drag race myself from the delirium

Engine racing

Pedal pumped

Gears grinding

An obnoxious halt

Battery dead

Billowing smoke

Fumes choking my sighs

I care not

Happily stranded in scorching temperatures

I won't even dial up assistance

Wave off any passengers

Spend long lazy hours

Sidelined

Stalled by the side of his road

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
