Poems of the Week


by Dan Campion

“As gas prices surge, here’s how to get the most out of your tank”

We thought we’d learn “to get the most,”
Direct from General Patton’s ghost—
A soul undead as Ulalume’s—
Like how to run a tank on fumes,
But get, instead, some gaseous tips,
A glovebox-full, for dull car trips.
