Dedicated to Niagara Catholic High School
by Christopher Bradley
I can't remember how much it cost
or quite what I was up to that summer
but in 1988 I attended driver's education
and drove my first new car.
Of course the car wasn't mine
It was leased to the school
A nice large Buick LeSabre
with Air Conditioning.
I learned all kinds of road signs
and accident statistics
And talked a lot to a shy girl named Amy
who I had worked with for the school in eighty seven.
It was a privilage to learn to drive
and tour a vehicle
around the back streets off of
And pull onto an expressway
for the first time
confident that I would find the
freedom of the road
at every slight maneuver
through the time
of my life.
