A soft rain falls on all the 7-11s of Arkansas

A soft rain falls
on all the 7-11s
of Arkansas

&the hum
of the Slurpee
machine lulls

Marjorie asleep
while the moon
parked above

the parking lot
shines
on the fat

cheeks of her
baby girl asleep
at her mother’s

across town &
in this still moment
& for one eternal

second all is right
& Just

in the world.
