Road Trip

It’s too early in the morning
For snakes,
It’s too cold,
We hoped.
We looked at each other for reassurance
As our breath frosted over.

On an impulse my brother
And I drove across the state.
Its highest point we repeated
To each other.

Walking thru the cactus and
Thorn scrub taking photos
In the cool high plains.
The sun preparing to cook
Away the dew.

We just felt like
Getting away,
Two aging brothers.

TWoMI have written for myself for 40 years and read widely. It took the influence of my dear wife Sarah Basore—Sara Saint John to you,—to make me want to write for others. Henry Kuttner, Robert Burton and Joss Whedon are my role models.
