the beginning of the end

colorado grasslands
empty wideopen
moon shining behind us
he drove without speaking
down that ribbon of road
cut like a scar through
grim camouflaged scrub
pocked here and there
with poles and with fencing
all had seen better days
including us
hence the silence
under that moon we were fleeing
like refugees
destined for nothing
but darkness
