Cemetery Drive

Once drawn to the ones hidden behind
burning shrubs, now gulping vinegar
like memories of her—there’s no cure

except to leave him alone. Take a ride
until sunset caves behind an unkempt
horizon line, darkness looming, jagged

blackness. Searching along, where ever
we’re going won’t heal tendons blistered,
eyes drifting like ghosts floating along

Cemetery Drive every night. Our visions
of each other: skeletons without motivation
sinking into a cold mountain stream

where blond reeds hide our intentions,
only tangling as we grow into our story–
Wind keeps blowing along the front range

we listen for the signal singing, Come back
with my dreams, 
too terrified to let love
go, how long will it haunt these fields?
