seven minutes to the next mcdonald’s
welcome to pot roast country

remind her of
blunt nosed


into      hopeful
small town depots
Keremeos or Hedley
for a quick       bite

twenty minutes
            maybe thirty
then     only
            the tattoo image
of those narrow
the get-away

gearing up to
the motion
         of pulling out
                 of town
