Shopping For Home

Here on the road is a strip mall
each parking space named in reverence
the meters metered apart
brake light, brake light.
These white lines are stitches
holding the skin tight.

Together, do not let the forgetting out.
Like palming the forehead
reading the lines of your brow:

in your future

you will weigh a scale.

Take the escalator home,
pulling each fold of the curtain.
