People Ask

What happened?  Listen, I’m a machine.  A “communication device.”  We break.  I broke

a little.  You–you can’t break.  You

ask.  You don’t want the answer.  Air, water, steel.  That is what lasts.  Whatever

happens.

    Questions
    knit our brows
    only yarn
    not the steel
    traps we imagined.
