Five Flags Auto got one flag flying,
so what the fuck I come here for.
Fat boy flapping his polyester tongue
like a five hundred dollar ride is gonna
shine on some tail: rust like loose
leopard skin, dangling rearview,
three hubcaps gone, grill tanked in.
Got a solid block and the tranny hums.
No leaks and as is. Sticker says runs.
Said his man squeaked it clean.

Who needs chassis
when engine’s good. Right —
who needs chassis
when engine’s good,
tires still got some tread,
and some old roads got
some new black smooth.
