The tollbooth martyrs, 21 - 56
Leave their lives at the gate and beneath the standard issue crucifix
Push their summers to the side of the plate
Live their lives through diaries, can't get jobs in libraries
Live their lives through diaries, can't get jobs in libraries
The calendar model, long-retired, expecting her third, joined a choir
The saucer of coins marks off the years from college to dole to tollbooth cashier
Live their lives through diaries, can't get jobs in libraries
Live their lives through diaries, can't get jobs in libraries
