burning cigarette
i tried to toe-it-out
to faceless voices
unpaying attention
mumbling jokes in
Shell's backyard

the parking lot people
didn't understand

see
the
cigarette

And when i went inside to tell
gas-station workers...
they were eating fresh strawberries
in the backroom




unreachable
untouchable
laughing more

smoke
turned privacy fence to flames
behind the car wash

and '911'
unreachable
in my hand
