THE YOUNG DRIVER

 

When she first

squirreled her way

into our Versa

it was the steering wheel

she grabbed.

 

But soon she became intrigued

with various levers:

the windshield wipers

and the signal lights.

 

 

Then it was the horn –it  made her smile —

then the radio and AC.

 

She was  disallowed access to the starter

but that didn’t seem to matter.

 

The windows going up and down

brought further smiles.

 

She claims this car when it becomes  her visitor —

every couple of weeks.

 

She puts on her grand father’s sun glasses —

her final overture.

 

It lasts a little while

and  takes no gas

to bring such satisfaction
