I rode in the front seat of the cop car after the impact. Stood in the sun, burning before I made it to the beach. Someone was called to collect his census files, my car. Both cars: driveable. No witness to sight, only sound. I made up for it with buckets of margarita mix, whole bottles of tequila. My friends let me drive alone, let me walk the boardwalk alone. I got back at sunrise, found you drunk on the lawn, trying to light magnolia leaves on fire, saying they just won't burn.
