ROAD SALT LEFTOVERS!

ROAD SALT LEFTOVERS!

 

Greyish-white cruddies

Over rocker panels…

Evidence of road treatments

Gone through proper channels.

Evaporation

Of salty brine…

Culminates in car washing

During wintertime.

Crusty crud’s eating

Through a car’s main frame…

Obsolescence meeting

With a scrapyard crane!

Go into the tropics

To see the ancients run…

Without road salt griminess,

Restoration’s fun.

 

–Jonathan Caswell

(The above is one example of a quatrain…poetry written in four-line stanzas.)
