He packed the remaining slightness of her
tightly into an old timey suit case the same
color as his home made heart
to catch a red eye out of Arizona.
Brass buckles caught his pant leg
as he ran, throwing him to high traffic
carpet made of things that burned
his face to slow him to a stop.
Sitting up he noticed she was spread
about in pieces again and understood
saying goodbye would be more difficult
than an old timey suitcase could be packed into.
