Michael Campagnoli

she sighed

across the dashboard’s

glow, leaned her head

against the window

gazed an empty moon

 

waiting for a lover

watching for him

to rise up

 

up

from the puckerbrush

and mist

 

not to save her

but to whisper:

 

that love is more

that dreams are more

 

than waiting

for a hero

~
