My Last Oil Change

Was over a year ago.

2006 Silver Saturn Vue–

And by the way,

That’s my usual level

Of gas,

In my tank.

My output was 60 hours

My input valued at 12.

But that’s positive,

Unusual.

She started making

Noises,

Similar to…

My mother–

That ball rattling,

Up the cylinder,

with every inhale,

Hard suck.

Lung exercises.

I smoke my

Marlboro lights

Hundreds

My air filter-

Filthy.

My alternator-

200 in dog years.

Rattling,

Winding,

Seizing,

Screaming

Accumulating

Burdensome

Residue.

My,

Bawdy-politics.
