COVID Spring: The Longest Drive

Two points determine a line
But today there’s only one plane
Landing at the airport; hawks wheel
Over the green river valley. I took this road home
From the hospital, every day, a year ago
Until that last grey morning.
On the Mendota Bridge
A funeral procession: a hearse
And one car, headlights in the sun
Lighting that last road home.
