freed on weekends
from forceps and scalpel
my father
rides his white horse
across wind-cleansed paddocks

stubble fields
stiff in autumn sunshine
bristly and tough
as my father's whiskered chin
wind roughened and raw

last exit
for a hundred miles . . .
he looked so sad
when he said he'd never
hit me again

big rigs
down the highway
all night
cows bellow
for lost calves

smudged ink
on his postcard
not tears
but rain falling
in the miles between us
