My first man left me

(a grammar lesson on the relationship between “love-able” and “leave-able”)

on a curb, weekend-bag packed

asleep, in a car, outside an unemployment office

in a ditch, beside the road, dust rising up behind the car like some dirty comment bubble

at the graveyard, next to a cold reservoir and an open grave
