cool ride

betty let me borrow her 73 bug

while one of the vans are in the shop

i drove it to winn dixie before heading home

i filled it front and back with groceries

i listened to the radio through it's crappy speakers

wgad 930 oldies crackling through

only two knobs on my radio
no fm
no cd
no a/c
but the evening was cool
so i rolled down the windows

and let the wind kiss my face

drove home shifting gears

it's been a long time since i had my own little 73 bug

long time since i drove a straight

she smelt like a volkswagen

and the sound of that little engine so familiar
