Car Love

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.
