Tuesday Poem: an earlier version published by Earth's Daughters in 1986, and by Fine China: Twenty Years of Earth's Daughters in 1993

1949 Pontiac

black and sleek.
My father rounds
his gleaming fastback
sparkle of chrome,
my mother already
tucked inside,
the vault-like
slam of the door 
still music
to his ears,
solid as a limo,
this dreamy Joe 
Dimaggio about 
to cruise away
with Marilyn.
