Riding in cars with boys


Moving with the road, 
Hugging the cliffs and sea
Music pounding and strobing
Streetlights and headlights
Bass beats and tenor voices

A strange calm amidst the noise
She counted stars and reflections
Head tilted up to the sky as 
He drove to the night's end
As they laughed and swore that it would never be less than it was

In that moment of feeling infinitely powerful and small
Stood at the edge of the water
And at the top of the slide into the dark unknown
They filled the questions with happy noise

Hiding the answers in bravado as they drove
To the night's end. But not to dawn
For they hoped it would never break
That tonight would be enough
