Every other week during summer, or fall ...
there's a loud noise rattling my huge window
facing the shady street
where no kids are seen.


Old fashioned grass cutters like the one I had made a minimal noise,
I don't have to visualize it, or see it to describe its actual color...
days ago I saw one with a dangling front the front bumper,
and the small, miserable guy was trying to snap back in its  place.

I came outside and yelled, " Fix the darn machine and let me sleep! "
and giving him a second nasty look running my mouth as a truck driver,
" Sir, " he replied, " I am trying to fix it and finish the job and leave!"
" Do it quickly and let me get some more sleep! " that was my answer.

And just in case you wonder
what its color was are
in for a shocking surprise, it was much dirtier
than an abandoned car 
with a finish similar to a chocolate's eclair!
