29 – hit and run report

hit and run report

And the victim,
Max Martin,
is described as remaining

That’s it. The page ends
but does Max Martin,
the victim? He remains

I’m told, but nothing more.
Where? In what state?
The rest is left vague.

I suppose I could simply turn
the page and learn
the plain truth

about recovery time,
litigation, the injurious
particulars,

and let
that be that,
but some hand

I can’t fully grasp
stays me,
stirs me

to hazard wild
guesses about
the unknown

victim,
Max Martin,
and the state of

his remaining.
Bound, now, somehow
to my own.
