Van (metal inspired poetry)


I climbed aboard
cinco brasileiros
e uma ‘mama’
e me
cold outside
Snow falling around
Warm inside
laughter and fun
and some tension, too
Such is the life
On the road
How do we get there
from here
How did I get here
from there?

27 November 1996

Note: Somewhere in the Chicago suburbs, Overdose played that night. I rode with them to the next gig in Muncie, Indiana. Overdose opened for Crowbar on that tour. It snowed, so we had to stop and piled into a hotel room to wait out the storm before going on. It was an interesting experience and I’m glad I did it.


About Kirsten Tautfest

Writer. I've done a lot of living in almost 40 years. My first two self-published books in print/Kindle are what I have termed serial soccer fiction. Red Tales is based around a professional soccer team, set in 1998 their inaugural year, and traces the lives of the players, staff, and fans and how they all intertwine and collide for better or for worse.
