a note from the editor

everytime i close my eyes / to go to my happy place / i find myself a single passenger / driving down an  e n d l e s s  road / sitting behind the wheel of a red chevy / convertible / tearing a sunburnt flatland / roof removed / the blue sky on top of me / and my hair is honey / there’s no music on the radio / but the sound of the wind / and i’m not sure / but i think / i may be / a woman / i can never see / my face / and i never stop moving / but i can’t help but wonder / when this became my happy place / my therapist would say / how i’ve always / lived my life / on autopilot
