Car Crash

Glimpse to grasp gaps
slipping in the sloping
pavement pointed toward
grasses and grains of
places you love

rooms warm as noon on
naked neck or knees
knocked between thighs
wide as the highway
winds through a porch

screen flashing the big
picture a dig into
memory like a knife
slicing your brain

decanted on the road
is mined and mucked
in a flash that machine
drags you in.
