on buying a new car

the upholstery is black
the exterior black
the shiny gauges and floor
black black black

my financial outlook for the future
along with higher insurance
a teen driver
and my own accident record

i am conflicted looking at the new car
happy to be in it
impressed by all it does
plugs for the ipod
some get up and go
and neat new features
my used subaru did not have


i am saddened by the 300 less a month
because that is how much insurance
and the beast take away from
going out
eating well
and just the general fund for well being
that was slim anyway

but there it sits
shiny shiny and new
and in need of rubber floormats.
