The Old Couple

Day after day,
the old couple down the street
climbed into their car
to keep it company.

Going through the motions of being alive,
she whipped around the steering wheel,
he hung his hand out the window to signal turns,

In the rear-view mirror,
both raise their fists at recklessness
and abandon,
imagined or real.

they took a walk.
