Poems By Mark Gaudet

 

Her Big Buick

She had a big Buick
Riviera

Cream colored
with white walls
so clean
I wanted to lick
them

Saddled leather
seats
worn out

Her trunk
was big
I’d climb
inside it
sleep
next to the spare
and smell
the rubber

She had a 401
Nailhead V8
that purred
when she dug
into the pedal

The odometer
read 175,467 miles

She liked to drive
it hard

And ride it hard
