OUTER FACE
(7/22/18)

"where
are you
right now?"

she
caught me
staring into space
over her
shoulder

I want
to say
that I'm
right
in front
of her

but I know
that isn't
quite true

"you seem
a million miles
away"

a million
would be
a severe
underestimation

I travel
by the process
of elimination

she just
happened to be
the first
off my list

a launch
pad
scorched

left
behind
