Amateur Mechanic

Greased, grimy,
blackened with brake dust
knees bearing gravel imprints
and creative sacrilegious phrases
shouted at frozen bolts and bearings.

Wind spitting back paint
in the sky open bowl,
mixed materials image
white over grass and dust particles,
hatchback shinguard judged adequate.

The Chilton’s magic tome
written in some sacrificial Greek
Glyphs smudged by fat raindrops
as the light faded under heat lamps
gravitationally drawing every nearby insect.
