Now Reading


we spend the rest of the night in her company,
even though all i want is to go home
and take my refuge in the closet
when it’s finally time to go,
she insists on driving us both
with me in the back

her left hand on the wheel,
right hand on your knee
she stops at the end of my driveway without a word,
lanterns flickering amongst the hydrangea
as she puts the car into reverse,
i catch you looking back at me
