Sonnet #2: Week of January 29, 2017

The minivan is not a sexy car.
Its boxy shape—no matter what the make—
Will scream “suburban carpool.” If you are
A lover of design, there’s more heartbreak
In roof racks that are tailor-made to take
The family clamshell on a trip that’s sure
To prove to be a mile-by-mile mistake
Set to the Chevy-Chase “Vacation” score.
But if you’ve lived a couple decades more
Than thirty, you’ll take comfort over style
In every feature, from each sliding door
To easy fold-down seats. And every mile
Will be a sweet dream fashioned in Japan.
Come ride in my Sienna minivan.
