Ignition








I dream I'm
in an afterlife
where all the people
important to me
explain how they fit,
how we went
wrong or right.
I float bodiless
from one spirit
to the next,
learning why things
never worked out
with so and so,
why that prof
at school hated me,
why my car
would not start
the morning I
was supposed to drive
away from your
roommate forever,
but ended up talking
to you, instead.
