Mapping Affection

(Published at The Writers Club)

From the glitz in Kara’s eyes
to when she last said goodbye
breathed distrust as a mist
in the bed of a pickup truck
somewhere back West.
I unfolded an untraceable map
over the back roads,
leading to routes that read,
Better left untraveled.
My fingers trekked every inch
of her sweaty body,
searching for the place
where she hid my heart;
finding it under her thumb.
