Booth 3: Izalco

I thought it funny,

the foto,

I said there were tears shed,

she told me that she hadn't

cried since she day

her father left for a pack of cigarettes

and never returned.

Sent a postcard ten years later,

the front of it a picture of lighting

across the Tulsa skyline,

but the postal stamp was from St Louis MO.

Said he missed her.

Said he wanted to catch up.

Said he wanted to see how she was doing.

But didn't leave a return address.
