the day after Christmas

the day after Christmas wrapped up like a gift
in white fog, the roads haunted like a cemetery
a week after another phone call breakup and I
dream of long text messages and apologies
black skirt black knee socks black boots
when I die spread me amongst the cigarette ash
in my backseat and drive fast enough to crash
