Cousin Charles

28 April 2009
Vol. 9, No. 1

I don't know how he does it, even how he

walks or holds a pool cue, as angry as he is.

Mine's like his scar,

but the footprint is the shape of a horse-hoof stamped into my back and chest,

both sides.

Supper at the Flying J

25 April 2009
Vol. 9, No. 1

That he died in public makes it worse:

privacy folded inside out

like his black socks in the suitcase on the seat-rack.

It's like us to have imagined we could work in the car.
