the scorching miles

he made Her feel like

all the doors

and all the windows

                                        were sealed up tight

while simultaneously

                                ripping into



Like her


had their own  hearts

                                                and her tongue had toes

                                                that crept

                                                their way

                                                closer to him

                as close as they could


until the


                   in her     ears


and the sob

in her

                stomach               the ache

                                                of her       eyelids


resonated through her hair

                                                      follicle    to    t  i  p


Her fingernail’s     smiles 

never felt quite the same


and through every road trip

she choked on his name
