First Car Ghost

by Herb Kauderer

no matter what speed he drives
race track fast or funeral slow

no matter what size he drives
tractor trailer or two-seat Metro

he knows at any time
he may find himself once again overcome

by the sensation of driving
that beat-up 65 Dodge Dart

down Southwestern Boulevard
at a hundred and ten miles per hour

while the straight six-cylinder engine
begs for one final chance

to run free
