1960's Texaco Station Dallas, Texas b

I am tired

but I made it home

and I am not OK.


It’s a little past midnight

slamming the screen door shut behind

checking to see if I am still under warrantee


Got a lot of miles on me

full check up

looks like hope is shot, confidence needs to be refilled


Might as well change the tires while I am here

winter tires for traction and control

so they don’t keep spinning


He says I will get you back on the road soon

just like you were before

engine purring like a kitten
