Comes Another, Another After Leaving

Calm carries pockets of crisis-

stones in a dress, nights of quiet


rooms to cry or chew

numb limbs then something


begins: taillights swerve, words

kick the body to flight, thrill


against an exhaust pipe throws

stones out the window


into fields where men wait, quiet

for a dress to fall away.


A new calm returns now a moon

against an unlearned breast-bone.
