City driving

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Drum Dream Girl” by Margarita Engle: drum, pounding, sticks, secret, gardens, imaginary, parrot, comforting, carnivals, rattling, silver, allowed

Driving to the city with the silver side mirror
Objects are allowed to be nearer but blur
I am not keen on driving in the city
There’s always traffic to do my shopping spree
Sometimes the noise is like a drum pounding on
Every manoeuvre should always be dead on
Stick shift requires more skill than automatic
And with Him who is such a secret car critic
Better to stay in my comforting garden
And with my parrot’s rattling noise, it’s more fun
Driving to the city with the silver side mirror
Objects are allowed to be nearer but blur
