Stephen’s Classic

English: 1975 Plymouth Fury coupe B-body

250 bucks for a used Plymouth Fury,
and an old dilapidated mess.
It’s broken down and barely runs
but yields visions of grandeur, past.
I poured my soul into those wheels
just to get her on the road again.
The pulsing engine hums with power
like a black demon on wheels –
whispering, like a lover, in my ear.
Changing me from the nerd I was,
she was worth every sacrifice.
Now, it’s just me and Christine,
until death do us part.

Stephen King is among my favorite authors. When I saw the “on the road again” prompt at Writer’s Digest, I couldn’t resist the homage to King’s book, Christine.
