Portrait of a Motor Car

IT’S a lean car… a long-legged dog of a car… a gray-ghost eagle car.
The feet of it eat the dirt of a road… the wings of it eat the hills.
Danny the driver dreams of it when he sees women in red skirts and red sox in his sleep.
It is in Danny’s life and runs in the blood of him… a lean gray-ghost car.
