PROLOGUE


Yes, that boulevard, that

rain-wet road, the truck

that tried to bypass

my red car—yet

skidded at an angle, in,

swallowing half a decade

(the brain sheered left

along the bone and split

apart my former self). Inside

that fractured dusk, ink soaks

into a ring of trees I’m

pinioned within.
