Empty at the end of Highway 21 – from “Northwest Passage,” pilot episode

Cut to Black Lake,
a picture window at
water level,
a woman’s body
cautiously rugged.

A gap of dark,
the shores something horrible,
face down and bruised,
the first light of leather.

Empty at the end of
Highway 21,
seventeen and running onto the edge,
you don’t say a word to anybody,
seven fires shaking between the sun.
