Jalopies

eventualities don't apply to me
no matter their presence
in the mirrors of reality

always one step ahead
though the shrinking distance 
     haunts
like an early frost - too early
as the news carrier's tracks
die in frost bitten shock
eventualities be damned

A proud GTO once sneered
at the pitiful jalopies that 
soiled the curb

a roaring young engine
never once to glance at
those left behind

the discontinued riffraff
that Pontiac replaced
eventualities be damned

i don't celebrate old nor
the discontinued remnants 
like Pontiacs left like
a lunar excursion module
waiting for the next Apollo mission

I've learned to celebrate today
until my "jalopiness" overcomes me
eventualities be damned

As a thriving, current jalopy I have a familiar insight to your provocative piece. Cool. :o)
