loss

i'm sorry for angie
she's a road maintenance worker
twice married, twice divorced
happy nonetheless most of the time
today her boyfriend's sister died
she's sitting on the curb
outside my maintenance shop
with a cigarette, waiting for him to call
and say he's doing okay since the news broke
he has no reception up in the hills
above granite falls where he's a flagger
and a sometimes street sweeper

come on, joe
call already
