Automobile Memories

Growing up
I never worried about
toxic emissions
from internal combustion engines
or catalytic converters.

My focus
was on watching Grandpa Frank drive,
watching him use
the clutch and break to stop,
or the way
he shifted gears
as he steered his standard transmission
Ford automobile.

I remember him bitching
when gas prices rose
from fifty cents a gallon
to seventy-five cents.
