To His Book

IV lxxxix

Enough now, stop! That's a red light!
Your pedal's stuck, you're pulling right
your wheel's groan means cracked brake shoes
your aged transmission's overused.

The poet in the back seat's red
the Allstate man's shocked. Nearly dead
my attorney advises: he'd like to be dropped.
Thrown rod, cracked head, dry-Ujoint, stopped.
