creek bottom fly away

there ain t many out there who ask for less
they’re the ones who drink under bridges
wish for empty boxcars
clear skies with
stars that lift and separate
like some astronomical wonderbra
eventually putting themselves to sleep
watching creeks travel backwards
after too many or not enough.

it s a fine balance
to maintain
what with the
ruck of the crowd
vendors
pushing for a
year round
tourist season
that don’t know when
enough is enough.

the skies are playing with us
there is warmth in the sunsets
a longer day
a few minutes
makes a difference
and feels golden
if you count yourself lucky
that s enough.
