Nights

The nights, spiraling down back-roads,
the silhouette bodies in the windows grown
from the dash-lights pressed against silent lips,
are reminiscent of you.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m the silhouette looking in,
uncovering a history of past excursions—
like anthropology of the heart—that feel vacant:
It’s no wonder they call it a lost profession.
