Between 2 Cars
My '90 Dodge Daytona sat
On Horseblock Road.
We hitchhiked east
To Kelly’s induction,
The trucks were leaving
Ashes were spreading
And 16 people stood
Outside the service.
Sean, Laura and I approached.
We made 19
Peers in formal wear
Feuding for space
Between 2 cars. Packed with living friends,
We found our way back home.
Sean’s flag stood through his window,
Guiding and mediating,
So nowadays I try to reason with atheists.
I’ll never forget returning to my Dodge.
It started and drove without a flaw,
And I felt like I had aced a test.
