"Excellent poem, my friend. You know, that's a perfect example of what zen masters call "enjoy the moment", because you were washing your car, not to have a clean vehicle, but to enjoy the action of washing."

Biographical Notes On Don Hagelberg

Massachusetts born Don Hagelberg, has been a Californian since 1947. Active in the Civil Rights Movement which brought an end to Blacks sitting in the balcony only, Don was imprisoned in 1963 for refusing induction and served 1964-1965 in prison instead of the military. He created, produced and hosted “Live Poets” a two hour, weekly radio program, broadcast on a San Francisco listener-supported station. A founding member of the Bay Area Poets’ Coalition, he supported efforts to gain dental insurance for members as well as supporting the guerrilla poetry readings which the Coalition did on the Bay Area Rapid Transit District’s BART subway-trains.
In 2000 he suggested to the British Broadcasting Corporation [BBC] that they broadcast the Finnish epic poem, The Kalevala, in English. To his delight, they followed his suggestion by broadcasting the epic in installations. This pleased him because many international listeners were able to hear The Kalevala for the first time.

Hi, Don, On the main page, go to the top bar under the TBD banner and click on groups. On the group page then look on the right hand top side and click on "add a group". From there it is self explanatory - there is a camera icon (I think) for adding a photo which you can either download from your computer or from a url .

Auto Wash
In Memory of Richard Aimo Hieta

I squirt the bottom of the pail
With liquid soap, then water-fill,
Quite full, until the top
Flows over in a jam of froth.
I hear each bubble burst
And hand-shroud my ears in utter uselessness
Trying not to hear each explosive sphere
I suspect of being improperly punctuated.
This auto-wash occurs once a year;
Parking allotted at the newer Finnish Hall.
And the teens applaud the seniors as they
Hand over the keys to their dream cars.
First the subs and rubs,
Then, at the next “Station of the Auto,”
Trickles the rinse to be followed by
The window squeegee and the chamois dry.
Finally attention is transported to the inside
In which the upholstery is damp-ragged down
While some saint vacuums both mats and carpet.
Richard Aimo Hieta drives-out the car, done.
Fifty years ago we did not know
How exhausted autos were and drove them
On Industry’s recommendation because those
Seeking passage lived beyond the accidental pause.
What irritates more? Finding out that
You’ve been told an advertised untruth?
Or that soapy-water snapped into ancient eyes
Stings away the illusive wheels of the juvenile?
