Muscle Cars…

gear head I am

love muscle cars

i do

My Dad would

dragrace in Riverside

we were Colored

in those days

memories of my

Mom looking like

Dorothy Dandridge

in Jackie O glasses

us eating a crusty

hotdog and orange

bottled pop

Uncle Bailey standing by

Momma smoking Kools

sis and bro in tow on his hood

Daddy flying down the strip!


pause, GREEN !!!

Roaring engines

mountains of smoke

and the sun setting….

Another Saturday night

Momma had enough

of blown engines

your girls are half blind


his dreams

Three little kids and a wife

Muscle cars still turn

my head
