The line passes in front,
one car at a time, headlights
in full sun—

how odd this pause, as if you weren’t
moving fast enough; colors of the trees
blanched from morning rain;

odder yet
because you had missed a turn somewhere
and am confirmed lost amid pancake
breakfast signs, dollar stores, convenience
gas stations, a Catholic church.

Finally, the hearse.

And a large crow swoops low
across the center line
before you pull out,
determined to find your way
home.
