Interstate [Sarah]

from A Promise by The Chairman Dances



I was wringing my hands. You were spinning your lies. The car was packed, the closets checked over twice. This life you would give up for a moment of rest, for some time to be among friends with less. You were running from everyone that day you came to burden my ring finger and tack on your last name. But you held me so tightly for a year or more. Say you’ll come back to me strong as before. I tear through the albums; the wall’s a sheet of white. And in the scattered glass and the emptied drawers all things are made right. Our blessed temples are burning. Our blessed bodies cry out as the car pulls away and dissolves on the road bending south.
