a good friend of mine

drove us all the way across michigan,
to another state
just so that i could take this picture.
well,
he took pictures too
and 12 1/2 hours later
it is clear to me
again
that i only feel alive when
i am attempting to create-
all other things in my life
are balanced- better
across the state
through snow
and the cold
and doors that wont close
and chains that don't shackle
and the dirt
and the soot
and the stories that we will be able to tell,
a friend of mine drove across the state
just so that i could find peace
in my sleep
tonight.
