brunswick county: nautical twilight

the land drifts into
dark pangaea, there is no

between silhouette
and fields of dead stars
the farm is quiet

she’s been growing
a glioblastoma
the size of a bridge

waving me across
homecoming the only
treatment she’ll agree to

where the gravel ends
the tobacco barn

leaning hard
the gravity of ghosts
curing within
