Can you put my pieces back together?
Make me whole again? I long for —
Air rushing against chrome, driver moving —
As fast as full throttle can go —more?
Fill me with people; fix my engine too.
Put some diesel in the tank go for —
A day trip with your hands on the wheel,
Switching gears, we drive until I’m healed.
Let’s go for a drive, to the seaside,
Find some entertainment on sandy beaches.
Let the girls wear their Jantzen suits glide,
Into lake shallows, splash each other, each —
Laughing, cloche hats tight; stockings gone beachside,
Honk my horn –it’s time to go; don’t screech —
My tires, they’re full of air, we’re driving fast,
Back in the days, driving was a pastime.
*Jantzen – swim suits more like swim dresses from the 1920’s made out of a stretchy thick jersey, not wool as many previous swim suits were made from. Jantzen jersey swim dresses were stretcher than regular jersey material.
*Cloche hats – swim caps with a strap under the chin to hold them on a woman’s head and worn in the 1920’s.
