walk away

walk away
a shimmering
ghost receding,
lost. still angry.
guillotined in rain
shattered
on curved glass.

green melting
Into blue jeans
fading away
to turquoise.

rain inverts you
on shining pavement,
lengthening.
you grow smaller.

gone. I drive on
check one more time
for love
In my rear-view mirror.
