becoming familiar

becoming familiar
with new streets starts
with forgetting old
ones, making room
for new turns and
bumps in the road,
so that there is less
chance for
tripping and falling,
getting lost – still,
we need more time

let it be a double-,

let it be a double-,
no, triple-
feature afternoon,
allow our minds
to run numb,
up and down the
staircase of
our scariest
scenarios,
perhaps even
trip on a
landing or
two, free falling

we keep doing this,

we keep doing this,
passing the baton,
season after season,
trying our hardest
not to trip

it shouldn’t take

there’s a middle school

there’s a middle school
field trip feeling
on those late
afternoon flights
the hum of massive
engines weave between
daydreams, whispers,
and minutes that go by
unaccounted for, like
the names of cities,
towns that
hardly register

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-
cigarettegirlgreen
is the title
of an album lost somewhere
along Interstate 40
when we were running
away from the rest of our
lives. you pulled it from
the trunk of that old Rabbit
which we knew would never
make it any further than
Nashville, but surprised
us instead, rolling into
Albuquerque. i can’t really
say if we escaped in the
end, but being here with
you, with those confident
chords
kicking in, traps
me all over again
