Ready to Go

The weathered barn
dusty bay in the far left corner
the nineteen twenty nine Essex
upright steel box of a body
yellow cracked wood-spoked wheels
the grease caked hard on the spindles
the upright bench seats
dusty seat covers somewhat worn
but still intact
the open glove box door
world war two gas coupons
casually thrown inside

plenty of gas

for next week’s trip to Boston
