just friends

we ride bikes home
(west winds blow sand
across cracked pavement)
and you ask,
"can we just be friends?"

i hesitate--
then answer,
"i don't know"

our ride continues in silence
(soft skies bleed gold
over stormy seas)
and another sunset goes unnoticed

  1. Nice one, Grant! I like the aplomb, the silence surrounding the few things said makes them important. I would cut eh excess even more, the "and"s and the "then". More! Post more! I will send you a catch-up email soon--lotsa work this time of year. PS I need a roommate--move to Italy!
