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



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
