Money Well Spent

It takes the ancient mechanic
a whopping forty-five seconds
to reset the warning light
that shouldn’t be flashing.
It takes almost three hours
to make his way home:
about an hour down the road
he stops at Positive Pie
for a slice or two of smokehouse
and more than a couple of beers
to thoroughly ensure that the
faulty, flashing warning light
isn’t the only thing that’s lit.
