A Dirty Parking Lot in Erving Massachusetts

June 29, 2020

I should’ve known it was something bigger
when the radio started turning off and on.


If someone really wants to mess with me,
all they have to do is fuck around with my tunes.


My uncle told me that there should have been
a loud whining noise, but I couldn’t hear it


over the music. Maybe that was the problem,
she was giving me the warning signs, telling me


there was a problem with the connection, but the music
was too loud. My uncle said that if I could loosen upon


the connectors, use a wire brush and a bottle of coke
to clean off the corrosion, she and I would be up and running.


That wasn’t the problem, corrosion is bad but if
the alternator isn’t working, the belt: frayed and about


to snap, the battery can’t charge. So at that point
it doesn’t matter if the connection is bad because


there isn’t enough electricity being created anymore.
