A fantastic new work from Zoe Quinlan
At the too much money trade in
she sits in the winter sun and waits for him.
Posh cars once truly expensive
now rest in a dusty jam.
You were once safe for three years
now after eight months it all ends in tears.
He wants to see how it feels
to hear the engine roar.
She knows his head has been turned
he hands over the keys to her.
Whatever the terms
the more powerful and younger car will be on the driveway tonight.
The sales man will smile as he rubs her down
and push up her value.
