             4 hands
    on the steering wheel

old wooden watchtower
   sun beating down
      on his guitar



hostess ding dong
in dad’s lunch box
child-size bite missing

       folded white paper
beneath the windshield wiper
            his goodbye



    substitute teacher’s
                back turned
paper airplane soaring
