Indiana Girl

she isn’t embarrassed
when he forgets his words

and ignores the comments
from the girl in the
plaid logger’s shirt

she only has eyes for the way
his fingers snake up

and down her neck,
ears for the silences after
her favorite lines, hands

that can’t wait to carry
something, hand-wash a shirt,
touch him

when he’s had
too much to drink
