She is staring out the window again.
Looking at something distant.
Past the parking lot.
Past the trees.
Past those feilds.
Past the lake.
Past the cell towers.
Past this state.
Past this country.
Past the ocean.
She is looking for somewhere
Where no one knows her face.
Where no one knows her name.
Where no one knows her.
No one can find her.
A new life for her.
