Still Hip

by Guynor Ngronski

GOELET the seller
neglected
mentioning the alarm

which shorted a wire
burning nine months
just short of fire

until flashers pronged
when headlights
retracted

& the guy at the service station
went thru
tracing the blip for a week

a declared it dead.
the best car
I ever had,

which for once let me
ride the Hamptons
in style

of sorts,
like the clothes
from the Ladies Village

Improvement Society's
Bargain Box, stuff the rich
write off

and I wear
proud in my fashion
up from the underclass
and back down to it.
