2017 April PAD Challenge: Day 26

Write about your own regrets, or the regrets of others (this is a great opportunity to write a persona poem).

Here’s my attempt at a Regret Poem:

“oil change”

after spending a month
bumming rides from friends
riding the bus & walking
to get everywhere you can bet
i wish i’d paid twenty dollars
to have one
