Going Back

I want to go back
to the passenger seat of your tiny red car,
to the stretch of highway when you told me,
“I don’t know where we are,”
and everywhere seemed so unimaginably far.
I want to go back
to the song that was playing on the air that night
when you told me you no l0nger cared about
which direction was wrong or which was right,
to the luggage that shifted in the back seat,
so unexpectedly it made you giggle in fright.
I want to go back
to the faint yellow stains on my last clean shirt,
to the shy silent ways we attempted to flirt,
to that time when we felt we were completely unknown,
to the weight of your hand on my thigh,
like a small stranded stone.
