Standing at the bottom ledge

of the tractor, she hands

the bright green leaves

up to the stringer.

$20 per day.

Two weeks later,

the feeder takes her hair

and pulls and pulls,

her last thoughts—

amazement at the capacity

of her neck to twist again

and again, outside the pain.

I can’t breathe.
