January 10th, DRIVING INTO THE NIGHT

from Charleston curving
through Swinton Creek
all the windows down

was it bullfrogs?
did they crawl
from the warm mud and leaves
to make those dark primitive sounds?
to sing with us
to the sparkling stars?

just for a moment
we felt that far away place
where we used to be
