Turn Key Truck and Auto

Your hands were absolutely beat to shit -

knuckles swollen, scraped, wounded.

The dirt -

greased-in, grooved-in, ground-in

defying the morgue technician.

Marked by ten thousand carburetors -

unnumbered brake cylinders,

gaskets, catalytic converters,

gears, clutches, axles.

Scarred by a million immovable nuts

and bolts

and couplings…………..

I remember you uncoupled at age 60

and never able to escape the despair.
