Even friends move on. And the world
is so much bigger than me.
When did you realize you weren’t home?

I find myself thinking of the word “ghosts” as I look up tonight.

It’s 10pm in outer space.

             (I am driving forever into stars;            nothing can stop me.                  Space has
             its music. It’s what echoes         are made of.     Somewhere,
             right now,         Jupiter is swallowing nothing                again and again and again)

I walk back to my car.
