Signed Out

by Elizabeth Rees


Traveling by cycle
with a pack of lies, dogs
at her throat. Someone told
her to sign out. She didn’t
have time to stop the voices
pressing her to split. She sure
as hell wouldn’t miss a blast
like that, shoes kicked off,
no rain check, no five minute
check. So what if the padded
cell of her mind caved?
She didn’t care
if you called
her. Alice was
gone.

Elizabeth Rees is the author of Every Root a Branch (2014) and three award-winning chapbooks, most recently Tilting Gravity. Her poems have appeared in The Partisan Review, The Kenyon Review, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere. (3/2016)
