the juniper’s hedge always hid the highway
from sight,
while the trucks wooshing by
were still trucks
on their way to something better,
something worse,
and we just sat in the old hanging swing
and let the juniper be enough,
all while some would say
we let the world pass us by,
but believed the fools were the ones
who drove on.
