Oregon pt. 3

skies and grasses passing
all the way there
and all the way back
music
talk
silence
where are we?
lost together
on our way back home
we are brothers and sisters
of a common mother
yes
we are the chosen ones
on the junkyard I5
gas stations
convenience stores
and auto wreckers
malls to the north
cross border shoppers
no allegiance to either particular country
like a carny at the carnival
too fast for you to catch
too slippery to hold on to
We accelerate with the carefree of teens
Where have we been?
Wouldn't they like to know?
We go
and keep going...
