We tent camped by the river;
Talked to ourselves the entire ride and laughed off the questions
that repeatedly took stabs at if we were alright.
Alright is alright
but alright is a state of mind,
Having spent our last dimes on grape cigars and grape sodas
we skipped setting up the tent and let the trees canopy us from persistent downpours.
The raindrops wapping the wide leaves made the silence enjoyable and the sugar sweeter.
