back to childhood,
somewhere between
Legos and Atari, when I'd
spend hours huffing glue and
Testors enamel paint, breaking parts
off plastic sprues to assemble model cars,
ships, and planes. I was that kid who'd use a
toothpick to dab the tiny speedometer needle red.
My fleet of pristine vehicles occupied a place of pride
on my bedroom shelves, until one by one they met fiery
and explosive ends as my boyish urges turned destructive.
But not so now! We had a reunion of sorts in Vault parking lot,
first time in a year Rich, Rob, Jesse, Matt, and I gathered (missing Will),
not to jam, perhaps, but I was grateful for their help in assembling this rack.
