Early in the morning
on the first day of the week
while it was still dark … John 21:1
You describe the state of the Model A
pushed over and down the river bank
to become part of a family’s history.
Brought to its resting place by one
of the brothers who knew
of your interest and restorer’s soul,
he said he’d be glad of it taken away.
You’re making your plans involving
a skidder to pull it up and onto
the flat, where you’ll bring a trailer
to haul it away, as you’ve hauled
a lifetime of ruination for restoration
in studio, in shop; it’s underway
in your mind. It’s underway.
