How to Express Desire
Howie Good

At that time of day, the road name is dark,
the most modest name of Della,
& pedestrians don't really go there.
That is, she could lie by the side of the road for hours,
bleeding to death without anyone knowing.
Please, please, please. Why not stop
& get out of the car (a white Mitsubishi probably)?
Hanna is not Chicago, & you are not American,
& just because she tries to get up doesn't mean she can.
