for Twiglet #226

Faith Came VIA Rail from Quebec City

Summer was in Destin with Jack's family, playing
Parcheesi when the call came. 
Half an hour, and she was backing 
from the parking slot, 
more rain forecast, 
Verdi on NPR. 
While Jack's mom waved 
from the condo window
Dad still tried to inhabit 
his body. Charity, 
in the hostel in Bremen, 
was sleeping. For her, 
hope was aloft 
for a few hours more.
