Freedom Angel, an elegy

Requiem for a car

My Honda, ‘Black Beauty’

Pulchritudinous in name only yet

Holding memories so dear.


For twenty years I’ve known her

For ten I’ve owned her

Lived with her, loved within her

Spent time, abused and bruised her

Tended her and mended her

Cursed and caressed,

And loved in the end.


A bed, a chariot

A moveable concert

A museum, a school,

A feast on wheels,

Mechanical campfire,


My freedom angel.

bye bye bye
