I find myself
saying yes

you look away when you
talk about your father

her braids again
winter wind

forcing a smile
for the selfie

to smile . . .

factory gates
a night shift worker shreds
his lotto ticket

the missing girl
wore pearls

not getting too close
to the largest stars

still uncut

the candle stub
