tucked into the best
of memories are
unnameable aches,
ones that by chance
graze you in the
middle of the night,
so that you are
unexpectedly
awake in the
dark, feeling
for the tape measure
you keep in your
nightstand drawer,
right next to the
wind-up flashlight,
weapons of self-
defense for
mitigating pain
with enough
workable data

to some extent, we

to some extent, we
do not want to know any
of the answers – as

if figuring out right or
wrong is an interruption

in the middle

in the middle
of the night,
belonging and
not belonging
take turns
at the wheel,
driving from
one small town
to another,
practicing
exemption
