GUESTBOOK (2012) 36: “Treadlessly So” (by Erik Todd Anderson)

.

Slick rubber spinning

as we careen out of control, yet

well within the limits

of our paved path.

Slick rubber whining

waiting for the moment

to burst it’s lung

and grind us to a halt.

Slick rubber getting slicker

wearing away to nil…

Will we make it up the next hill?

Slick rubber-

the curse of the automobile,

“predetirmined destiny”

with a price.

Why do you bring us down?

Did the pioneers have blowouts?

.

(c. Erik Anderson, 1979)
