The house looked the same
And Georgeís old truck was back
Waiting for Iambe to change the water pump.

I walked in and fixed myself a cup of coffee
Then wandered back to the garage
To watch Iambe work.

Her overalls gaping open on the side
As she bent over the fender
Revealed slope of breast, while her hands
In deft twist and move
Worked those
Mechanical miracles George depended on
To keep his old fleet running.

I canít dance
And my hands are not magical to machines
So I sat and watched thinking about her overalls
what was underneath,
knowing the coffee wasn't any hotter.

"She" inspires great things in you....
but then our pretty blue flames always do.

Ah, again, the magic of coffee!   Very well done, and suprised I am that the coffee wasn't boiling!

Just goes to show that beauty can't hide even under a coat of grease or overalls! Very nice prose! *S*

I've got a flat tire, think I could borrow her for a few?

Sheesh, George's truck is as much a character as the other two in this poem!

Sounds like my van, though it doesn't leak antifreeze. Just oil. :p

Anyway, I could feel the burn.
