Steamerhead Breakdown


Out on Steamerhead road
the sun burning there
too bright to see
the awesome heat tears at me
out on Steamerhead road
I find myself lost

dust
dust and gravel
on the side of the road
Steamerhead road
and I am alone
the summer stinks
but it is beautiful
fragrant

out on Steamerhead road
steam pours from under the hood
the old beast couldn't take it
any longer

there is a pistol in the glove-box
the heat is too intense

I might do something foolish
out on Steamerhead road

but, how may others
have lived this exact scenario,
in this exact location,
so many times,
out on Steamerhead road?

There is a pistol in the glove-box

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
