Evening Songs

their songs bounce off of the evening sky,
and beat the sunset home
voices full of mirth and reckless abandon
villagers look on in quiet confusion
this music,
made from children crammed in the back of an old pick-up truck,
between sticky palms and high-pitched laughter –
this,
is music from the earth

-E.E.
