Big Shiny Car

I wrote the following for some poetry challenge. It’s short. And ties into Alice in Oregonlandia, which is my SEQUEL  to HOUSE ON CLARK BOULEVARD. 

If the devil’s in America, she’s female. And she drives around in Detroit rolling iron. 

 

BIG SHINY CAR

The devil she rides in a big shiny car
up and down the roads
outside my town.
She don’t stop for nothing
and she smiles as she drives
with the windows far far down,
her familiar riding shotgun,
that old tommy cat
grinning at the wind
a’catching souls in his teeth.
The devil she rides in a big shiny car
and God don’t seem to care at all.
