It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

It sounded like a car engine

she lay in the spare bed, awake
she thought she heard the engine of his car start
but couldn’t be sure
it might have been the dishwasher
clicking its way through its auto cycle
and wooshing back into frenzied cleaning action
it might have been the bird come to think of it..
but it did sound like a car engine
that bird is such a mimic but really
a car engine?
perhaps it was the clothes dryer she heard and not the car
the clothes dryer, trying desperately to
get the uniforms ready since she had been
so cruelly betrayed by the sun the day before
it could have been
but it sounded like a car engine
followed by the squeaking cantankerous roller door
she thought she heard the car engine
which would mean that he had left
but in the end decided the noise was
coming from her chest cavity
as her heart thumped like a bass drum from within

It sounded like a car engine
