the sun slaps your brow like
a mid afternoon sofa, but you
don’t wake up. “she’s loved you for a
long time” you need to jump
away from a car that
is flowing in reverse. your friend and her
friend and her friend don’t know where
they’re going, but you’ve
been on this street before. “even longer than
you think” the sun sets, but
you’ve returned from the nuclear age.
“she hasn’t been a nymph for ages”
I can see through my hands.
