The Two Times I Loved You the Most In a Car by Dorothea Grossman
I am riding this wave until it’s over. Dear universe: please give this to me.
The Two Times I Loved You the Most In a Car
It was your idea
to park and watch the elephants
swaying among the trees
at that make-believe safari
I didn’t know anything that big
could be so quiet.
And once, you stopped
on a dark desert road
to show me the stars
climbing over each other
like an orchestra
thrashing its way
through time itself
I never saw light that way
hoping that everything goes well for you.
