Dirt & Grime

Race Car Driver Joan Newton Cuneo, seated in a racing car (LOC)

Dirt and Grime

Outlines of process gone

working parts of structure

the malleable nature of framing time

dirt and grime

the ways of turning

torque, pressure, alignment

sparks lit, quickly extinguished

hear them hit concrete

suddenly die out

throwing light all over

barely missing my face, hands

every part exposed

showered in dull pin pricks

contained splatter, shards of illumination

glowing brightness against this

rusty clunker unmoving

sits to display

now having new paint

conditions of movement

skeletal remains of possibility

waiting for a certain spark

other working parts to plug

and carry along

long gone memories:

this outline and a grinder

imagining something working
