TREE TALES

THE JALOPY

The young man was
fixing up a decrepit Packard
in the driveway
Rusted
no computer
seats worn through
heavy chassis
engine ancient

“How old’s your car?” I asked
With pride he stated
the make and year
“It’s three years younger
than I am!” I asserted
“Younger?”
he responded
in disbelief

I walked away laughing
but feeling
quite the clunker
