flush

she was pissed
and loud
ready to kiss
anybody
ready to fight
take exception
and cry.

he loved
her when
she got
out of hand
her cheeks
and temper
flush
with anger.

they were
past the bridge
the water
was up the
pilings
flowing quiet
north.

the corners were
soft
she was nodding
coyotes
caught
the
headlights.

it was day old
already
it made them
both
laugh.

the truck was
bench bound
in dry
broken branches
mostly pine
whipping up.

the slough
stretched
wide with
headlights
and tire
tracks.

when the motor
quit
and the lights
went out
the music
stopped.

they lost sight
of the pond
heard the geese
and coyotes
kicking up a fuss.

they were
pissed
quiet
ready to kiss
fight
take exception
and cry.
