on the way to work

pulling out of ampersand

was a young woman

knowing you were in your

after a night of adulterated

carousing with friends

i would like to think i could go

or to see you in all the cars

stopped at the crossroads

looking for direction

but when your voice

welcomed me home today

from my answering machine

i knew that i was wrong
