The Blueberry Hill Pancake House, a poem by Wendy Vergoz

The Blueberry Hill Pancake House

parking lot
on the East side
of town
is where
I picked up
my laptop
from the forensic
specialist,
plus the flashdrive
of Lydea and
her girlfriends,
the pornographic
clips
my husband
the pastor
had downloaded
onto my computer
six days before
he sent the letter
to his congregation
promising
with confidence
that there is
nothing
scandalous
about
our divorce.
