This Evensong

Skeletal frame
Oil drained
Engine well
Scorched-out Ford
Scavenged upholstery
On cinder blocks
Picked clean of doors

Know not easy
More than wrong
Sunset spreads
This evensong

Tumbling fall
Alternate crash
No big deal
Don’t care to ask

Leveled from pain
Front end smashed
Going nowhere
Lightening flash

Last rites
Baby cries
Lives in lines
Pennies on eyes
Singing choir
Tearful sighs
Through all of life
Must say goodbyes
