inspired by the late Curtis Vorda


It's that guy in his truck with a delightful FM radio
steering wheel controlled and vanity mirrored, it's computer engined
and to his right, custom built into the dash
is the mega mini kitchen containing all of those sweet
delectable fixins
Now he's using his fingers, he's tapping a little with a half-hearted grin
on his one two one
his upper lip is smudged, he's munching his grub
and his chub is all stuck, packed up into the rut of his gut
and he's shortening, not sweating a wink
bound by twangy sounds his head goes round and round and round

now he's using his blinker, to determine his angle in vehicle
yet sits still and constant, not breathing, unconscious
just able and willing to fill in positions he zooms to his mission
suspended in visions of petroleum and rayon, leather, cotton, freon
career complete with pension, including magazine subscriptions
platinum cards from wall mart, no use in the junkyard
frequent spots on talk show blogs and his machine starts to clog
His blood is so cloudy, pulpy and he's rotting
his meat makes dead fruit and he sucks from his tube

Walk right out the line
don't just sit and wait
it's your life, emancipate from the state
working like a pig, 90 hours a week
and the radio station's playing that defeated melody
