away from you

away from you
the light does not fall the same
not the same
the road bends, as it always does
curves and turns and rolls with the
but I do not follow
the horizon just out of reach of my eyes
out and beyond
away from you

the still water, though reflecting the sky perfectly
seems a riotous storm in my passing glance
and then as the moments stretch like the shadows
over the corners, like a well worn shirt caught
on the shoulder blades

away from you
half naked in the open window
this is where you can see

away from you
