GARAGES and CARS and TUBS

FULL OF GASOLINE

 

Kerry and I

went one Saturday

with Daddy to

his job at Elmer's Texaco

Gas Station & Garage.

As he changed

spark plugs and oil

we played

with socket wrenches,

tossed gaskets, climbed tires

and picked through boxes

and boxes of old

rusted keys,

having a fine time

until he lost his

balance, sat right down

in a damn tub full of

gasoline.

Dad hosed him off

and we laughed,

but to this day Kerry

still hates garages

and cars and tubs full of

gasoline.
