Right now the sunlight is flashing

in between trees,

and igniting the jasper

of my eyes

as I ride steadily northward

to home.

Right now there are lovers

talking, somewhere,

there are birds

flying, somewhere,

there are mothers, fathers,

sisters, brothers, children,

and lonely people on flights

across country

and across the globe.

Somewhere- children come

screaming to life.

Somewhere- life escapes bodies-

like water down pipes.

At this same time,

there are people sitting at home.
