7, 7, 7, Station Fill Up
By Christopher J. Jarmick
This dirty memory; regret I have
will be gone with flick of match.
Burn the pretty lace doily,
collectable comic books too.
Forget the good times ; they lie.
Arrange the oil cans all in too neat row
Let them ponder this disturbing display.
7, 7, 7 E.B. Filling Station
By Teresa Jarmick
Somebody builds a home
Front porch with gray floor and white columns
Wicker furniture, tea for two
Then the monkey grabs his dirty greasy gasoline
Lights a march, and grins like a phony comic
While my heart burns down.
Poetry is Everything
