the weekend

roadtrip. music. sun, heat. grass, shade. naps. homecooked meals. grownup room. couple-ness. long hike. big backpack. sleeping in the open, wind blowing gritty dust into everything. cold night air. falling stars. lying in the dark, quiet, loving her so hard. delight: shower, coffee, and breakfast after a night outside. connection. letting go. charting the territory. limning the borders. fighting back. forgotten things. flat tire. interesting lessons. resolution. learning each other. learning each other.
now we rise
and we are everywhere
now we rise from the ground
see she flies
and she is everywhere
see she flies all around

so look see the sights
the endless summer nights
and go play the game that you learned
from the morning
