my agent had it pegged as a bad
car at first glance.
custom wheels and stereo speakers,
a 2007 driven hard.
with each mile, the car made more and more noise,
i wondered if we'd make it back to the dealer
the salesman was a boomerang kid, living at home,
dropped out of college
his parents told him to come home and get
there he was in his pressed grey slacks
and reluctant smile
eager for a sale
by the time we left the 2007 car was
out for the next test drive,
used car salesman are called oily
for a reason.
