|train axles on a flat bed in the ice|
'why do refrigerators have lights?'
he asks, from the back seat
freezing rain & snow
on the window & the road
leading to Pappaw's house
before us with hour hands
yet to turn
'couldn't you just use a flashlight?'
today we focus on comfort
& convenience. making life
easier, to free time to do---
well, what do you do?'
kids, unafraid to question anything,
everything, while we settle for
answers we fill in ourselves
lines on the asphalt no longer visible,
slush rumbles on the undercarriage,
& we follow the ruts left by the car
in front of us, the ditch full of those
no refrigerator in sight.
At dVerse Poets today, Claudia has us ruminating on change in its various forms, luckily I did not have to change a tire in the weather...ha. Doors will open at 3 pm EST, so get writing.
