Your words stone me.
They lay me out on the curb,
waiting for a change
and watching the corners fade.
They bleed my eyes dry,
make my throat work
to form a response.
Distance loses context,
and I am left
chasing the moon
between buildings.

I can be seen
counting shadows,
and divining the secrets
of why my car has stalled
on the side of the hill.

The crickets are thick
and dark in song.
The sign is no help.

How do I get home?

Yes Mikey
but this is why you stalled:

The crickets are thick
and dark in song.

You're right, Sue. In fact, I didn't break down, but I sort of wish I had. They sounded amazing.
