She Is Playing a Role

She giggles and stammers on cue
in this midsize Midwestern city.

Another battle in these two days:
a single epidemic that floats around.

She wears a black baseball cap.
She could be anyone normal.

She wanted to do something.
She hopped on the plane.

Here’s the scene: a Dollar Tree,
five churches, the motel room.
