Silver Pickup

sound of the blinker clink clink

dusty smell of soft carpet seats

distortion on FM radio

KSCS Fort Worth Dallas

open the door from the outside

metallic crush slam

at the rodeo

tejano music

rusty hinge gates

climb steep steps

sit and watch and listen

to a twangy anthem

horses and cows ignite

clowns catch themselves on fire

stars slowly set

on a red dirt evening

pink purple and blue

it felt to watch something with you

on backroads lights

a tunnel of oak branches

silver comet in twilight evening

classic car omen of fading

forgetting where you were

and in your fear, lost

and in loss, losing

driving privileges
