re: getting away


the weekend clouds were sparse
so we rolled out
into the dark
and we rolled out
our sleeping bags
and we rolled out
to see the stars

the weekend fog was thin
so we slipped off
our moccasins
and we slipped off
into the current
and we slipped off
who we weren't

a rumbling sound
a bow and arrow
ear to the ground
trembling marrow

the weekend night was cool
so we slept in
the neighbor's pool
and we slept in
until the night
and we slept in
but something wasn't right

a cloud of smoke
the traffic hum
burning pile of oak
scared of what it's become


the weekend sky was clear
so we turned off
our exit was near
and we turned off
our cell phones
and it turned out
that we were alone

the weekend tide was high
so we stepped down
to our eyes
and we stepped down
from our roles
and we stepped down
to get closer

a distant sound
we're moving toward
mountain from ground
what we're looking for
