Susan Lacovara

Rookie - 913 Points (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

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
