Gangsters in the Cadillac

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Big beautiful black
47 Cadillac limo to Chicago i
Dreamboat in the fast American night
Ball the jack all the whitewall way
Zooming steady 110
Car thief 500
Speedometer breaks
Coyote Nowhere
Nebraska
Iowa
Angel of Terror
Fender cracked . . . bender
Rods gone
“I can’t stand it any more, I can’t look.”
Down on the floor of racing horrors
Fears of crash
Hid in backseat
Chicaga
Muddy heap
Unrecognizable
Broken boat
Time to get out — fast
