Jeff Burt: “Wheel”


I have gripped
the steering wheel
of my old F-150 truck
so many times
it has worn away
at the top and bottom.
Ah, but the sides,
the sides, sleek
as if new.
I have gone forward
too long, driven
to the appointed task,
needed to turn left
and right more often.

Jeff Burt lives in Santa Cruz County, California, with his wife. He has contributed to Willows Wept Review, Heartwood, Bluebird Word, and Gold Man Review.
