Thursday’s Poem: Beauty and the beast

Beauty and the beast

My newish Subaru
has a drinking problem.
It swills coolant
And then, feverishly,
pukes it back up.
The ’83 Toyota pickup
shakes its greasy cylinder head
in disgust
at this stationary wagon
with its heated seats and power everything
and like Old Man River
just keeps rolling along.
