turn off

i exit the loop road

your turn off on the left

               two hands

 

on the wheel. we’re late

we’re always late and driving

straight along this sea. you ask

 

if there was no water

then where’d we be? dark hair

               flat against the sky

 

even flatter than when i

first light

left you in eden on purpose

 

walked barefoot as the city

painted herself pink

husky desert creature

              from earth

 

to a satellite flies the phrase

            “i love you”.

my phonelight flashes while

 

we make omelettes in your kitchen

she makes omelettes

in your kitchen

              i made

 

omelettes. you have grey hairs

not blonde? he asks. no,  

not blonde,

             that night

 

i drive home along the highway

and exit the loop road

turn off

on the left
