April Fools Poem: "Rest Stop"

A Poem for April Fools Day.


Rest stop 
Pavement, road gravel, dirt dry throat
     heavy lids, dizzy routine. A hunger and thirst to see,
purple hills, a thread of river, the spit of a falls,            
                                the grandmother's smile, a wink, a grin,
          a future, another 24, another ten,
                                            breath into, breath, out of .... breathe.
                                        Get up, start up, try again
