like a restless husband
looking toward the door
the body begins to betray you

it sends up warning flares
along darkening roads
and hidden railroad crossings

one brow lifts
over squeezed-shut eyes
as if it has another place to be

and, as if intending to deceive,
tears leak from only one side
of your face.

a body tries to tell its truth
but the sun is shining hotly now,
never mind the pain light brings
