JUST FIX THE FUCKING CAR

JUST FIX THE FUCKING CAR
Matt Galletta

The mechanic
eyes me suspiciously
as I explain
the problem,

like he’s
a detective

and I’m a
reluctant
witness

withholding
vital clues.

  1. MM welcomes Matt Galletta, who’s sent in three poems. I like his style and sense of humour.

  2. The power of having a skill.

  3. Guilt by association caused by mechanical failure on the wheels of misfortune is forcefully and poetically driven home by Matt Galletta.

  4. I can relate as a computer technician pretty much does the same thing with customers problems good poem connecting with the common working Joe

  5. In the good poems, a little says a lot, eh?

  6. I tried to explain a particular sound to my mechanic once who just stared at me and shook his head- everyone describes ’em different, he says, and no one can tell me what they are. hopeless.
