Supertruck by Stephen Savage

The city is full of brave trucks.

The bucket truck

fixes a sinkhole with ramen noodles.

The fire truck

puts out a new album.

The tow truck

rescues a child in France.

The garbage truck?

he just got out of a relationship.

One evening,

it starts with one thing.

It snows metal on Venus

The city is caught

in a terrible mood.

Just then, the garbage truck breaks into a garage

and becomes a rose.

He digs into the past.

He digs a grave.

He digs deepest who deepest digs.

Hurray for the riff raff!

The next morning, the trucks wonder about the mighty truck who saved them. Where could he be?

He’s just standing there menacingly.
