Rescue Man
by John Grey


in the corner of your forehead
a scar from a long ago accident

there above your right eye
a car runs a red light
slams into your driver's side door

I kiss my way around the shards of glass
the twisted metal

such perfect timing

my lips pull you from your wreckage
fifteen years too late
