midwest america part one 

By Emma Geller

your hand 
on my thigh,
when we’re driving,
doesn’t feel like it used to

 & we don’t talk
at the gas station
when we stop 
for water & cigarettes

we keep driving down
highways, curving 
through states 
we don’t stop 
to take pictures

we keep moving
though there is nowhere to go.
