Faces All A Grin – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Clutch – Word of the Day

Photo: I never did discover who the owner was, but I was captivated by the beauty of the machine.

 

Faces All A Grin

If it could dance
this car would tango
it’s chassis would chasse
and holding the clutch in
pressure is building nicely
while the wheels begin to spin,
black smoke arises
there’s an old child within,
now letting out the clutch at last,
suddenly we’re airborne,
our faces all a grin.
