Impound Lot (tanka)

Carcasses of metal
like skulls dried by time
all abandoned –
with voodoo, souls throw
chicken bones in the dirt.

  5. Thanks guys! appreciate the comments ~ when i went to the impound lot for the first time, the driver (the guy who takes you to your car) was eating chicken wings and flinging them out the window, and it struck me, as broken down cars and boats passed by, that you really can't “litter” in an impound lot – because, the entire place is one big sad broken little graveyard.
