Closing Arguments

Our closing arguments
are hot tears in the road,
curses we will regret in 24 hours,
bad comparisons,
bad mouthing,
old babies we throw out with the rosewater,
spike our lightning bolts into the ground,
rake our tongues over our bared teeth,
carefully fold our clothes into suitcases,
make for the borders,
we love the loneliness of separate cars.
