xr 7

The Mercury Cougar celebrates 50 years in 2017.  The Cougar was a luxury version of the Mustang program and marketed between that car and the more upmarket Thunderbird.  Available in base, XR-7, GT-E and Eliminator forms, it was a potent luxury muscle car.  This poster which I made profiles the first generation Cougar from 1967 to 1970 and can be purchased from uniquecarposters.com

She's really got me..

She’s a classic rock kinda girl
in the ‘71 XR-7 convertible
sunlight in her hair
smiling even in crosstown traffic,
She always loves me two times
whether there’s a bad moon rising
or if it’s a bright sunshiny day
And we were working our way
through an extensive catalog
of inspirations and motivations
until during our Stones phase
I discovered she comes in colors


So now the sheets
are a Jackson Pollack painting
I don’t dare wear khaki
and I have to avoid
the candy aisle at the store
because lately
M&M’s and Skittles get me hard
