Out of State… by Kyle Hemmings


Out Of State

He sent her a text: Winters in Jersey. Living in cork-lined

rooms. Stripped down to my inner ear. I’m hearing things.

She replied: You have Michigan on your night trains. Waking up

with a crick in my neck. My days are split personalities in fogged mirrors.

He texted back: Quartz veins. Anti-muse in tunnels. Wolverines limp

in subways. fall asleep in imported armchairs. Leave dreams in wet tar.

She replied: They’re laying off the Kings of Grease. Another yellow

slip, I’ll be rancid meat. Come Home before I go short on snowfall.

End of Text.
