Like how a hitchhiker takes a ride, half
trusting, half resigned to what might
arise, half climbing, half sliding
between half body half space
the way a driver sets the pace, half
custody, half confinement, a hundred
miles in—half progress half regression,
half chronicle, half confession, half
whisper, half shout, half ajar, half agape,
half pressure of tread, half cargo weight, all
profile, all ellipsis, half arrival half escape.
