Still Missing

Saint Paul, 9 May 2014

In snapshots from commercial transport
Thunderheads rise up in the rear-view mirror
Reflections in the windshield could be anyone

Rolling by centerlines during daylight hours
Streaming by dusk when poles and power lines
streak the landscape like the grit of indifference

The maw below us transforms the road ahead
A crease in the clouds pinches out the sunset
steering us past all of the pictures still missing
