If a young girl cuts you off on the highway
She, muscling pagan yellow
empty gravel parking lot
decides figure-8 – and
Daddy riding shotgun for
his life, his wind-
deranged hair, his wild
eyes, breaks squawking
cool brown-leafed night settling
over car hood, engine
panting at lot’s edge
lump gathering in his throat
all their years.
