Fender Fields
Entry for 2017-08-10


In fender fields, jalopies grow
between the crossroads, row on row
of sacked sedans whose parts are prized
and sold, or slowly oxidized

As all roads lead to other roads,
all metal's destined to corrode,
all fenders finally are bent,
'til half the country is cement,
all lined and signed with Stops and Yields;
the other half is fender fields
