laughter beneath a motorway bridge

a city drive and thoughts ride along

I ask for directions but hope to find flowers


any bloom promises more

time shaped into souvenirs


a lone woman in a car thinking about fires

away from battle not missing the friction


the GPS machine indicates destination nearby

my memory begins to park itself


finding a little softness essential

to carry who I really am anywhere
