she had more friends

she had more friends

she had more friends
than you could fit
into the back of a truck

that's why she didn't mind
leaving them parked
on a cliff edge

while she went
for a stroll
with the brake in her pocket

from kept busy (River Road Press, 2008), ? joanne burns 2008, used by permission of the author and River Road Press
