The whine of organ donors

cool summer eve
but holidays
and traffic
and motorcycles
up the coast highway
and the two-lane beach road
many thousand RPM

no police but once
i did hear a siren
and many thousand RPM
went to zero
for a while

(their noise annoys
perhaps more than the neighbors
who cut their lawn
with a weedeater)

but gratitude is key in life
and for healthy young organs
more likely to be shared
at many thousand RPM
i suppose we should say
thank you
in advance
