Brian’s brand new wonderful black, shiny JEEP

The Height of Hubris

At five feet

my nemesis
a jeep.

The step too high.
The climb too steep.

At five
they could have
lifted me
easily
onto to the seat.

At five or at five feet
I might have
managed that leap

but not at fifty eight

and might as well be honest –

four foot eleven.
