Year 2: Day 9 – Engine Trouble

There are many things
that can be wrong
with your engine-
most of them
too hard
to explain.

There can be
screws loose,
you can have
worn-down parts,
maybe something just
snapped, or
you’ve got muck
building up
in the wrong places.

Unless you’re a mechanic,
it doesn’t matter.
It’ll suffice to say
something’s wrong.

Unless you’re going to fix it,
it doesn’t matter how-
all that matters is
it’s broke.

And even that doesn’t matter
so much,
that you’ve got
engine trouble, because
who doesn’t, right?
