for sale

By Jenna Villanova

the 1946 Cadillac 61 series aches
as it waits to intake scenic lakes
caged beside the modern minivan

interior shows appropriate wear
cigar scent shifts between seats
engine cricks when switching gears

through all these years  the finish
still pristine in forest green
blurs yesterday into oak lines

the glove box leaks future fines
call or text for a reminder of taste
1-262-forget your idling state
