Chevy Love

097 - Copy

Outdated,

discarded,

once as orange as a pumpkin,

now more a cantaloupe—speckled one, at that.

Wind battered and dust rusted,

once showroom shiny,

now no one’s dream.

But I found you—you with your boy toy grill,

a faded smile in the fading light.

I found you alone by the side of the road,

and it was love at first blight.
