The Sound a Dying Car Battery Makes

your water was sacred

left dripping

the names, the music

the medicine

it seems our soundtrack

was a car battery drained in the morning

the manual we never read

roadwork and the dawn

too much light in the dawn

every bird pointed north

but my tongue still extended

south, wishing to catch your last drop
