riding on my own in wintry weather via acres of land
abandoned via every little thing retailer the snow
trapped within the ruts of the road,
the moon damaged by means of the naked trees,
I consider the times while my brothers and that i may fall asleep
within the backseat at the method home.
this night, coming domestic, I remember
the faint mild at the dashboard retaining my father’s face,
my mother’s delicate voice, my brothers asleep,
the moon operating one of the timber beside the car.
