May 05 – May 11

05.
new metal bumpers
welded like caterpillars
to some sad body

06.
repaired beyond hope
the butterfly truck escapes
for one last ride home

07.
down the too slick road
the truck careers determined
a smile in its tank

08.
the rotting bridge creaks
at the truck’s bold decision
airborne one last time

09.
(we are that old truck
faded scratches mark our years
our tired tyres are bald)

10.
see the bridge fly by
the butterflies are brighter
hello open road

11.
straight white lines and dust
trouble’s coming home again
the butterfly truck
