[wonders]

 

she is a location
policed
by a trauma
that never
returns.

that’s a mouthful
on a first
date
but she is far
from photographing

roadkill.

still, she hears
it said
in sister
and in health…

/ she starts with a boy
who becomes a clown
getting
his pilot’s
license
on borrowed
time. what she knows

by number
is the single
highway
truck
that doesn’t
come.

her father is just
as she imagines-

a man
not making
siren
sounds
pulled over
by the man
who is.

she fucks
with her troubled
flashlight.
