Jimmy Dean's Car

Lee Flick Issue: Section:

Down on their luck
or love –
He crawled into a bottle
she into
herself

There were doldrums
& horse latitudes
& the feeling you get when
you can’t swim any more

Don’t you hate it
when people say
t’ll be alright
then they get in their car
buckle their seatbelt
& light a cigarette

A slow dripping malaise
of advice –
or the words go by
fast like fence posts
in a Spyder
like Jimmy Dean’s
