"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."


we abandoned textbooks and were free
kicking and jumping
in the dry twisted grass
and splatters of clover
we were together with the sun
and the dome of the white sky watching us
we breathed hard until we had
green on both knees
and forgot which team we were on
running both ways
through the summer afternoon,
shouting
and the red bugs in the yellow-flowered trees
dancing through branches
and us after them
around and around
those who seemed ancient
whistled at us
and our laughter
because they would never be so free again.
