we're standing

By Robin Wyatt Dunn

we're standing

we're standing under the tarp eating cheese
down from the ridge, to avoid the lightning
huddled tight

the cheese is moist and wet and hot
it tastes like roads
those footpaths carved into the wood by one thousand years of feet

and the rain remembers us too

where have we been?
we descendants
coming down the mountain
cheese in our mouth
