runaways (Samhain)

I never expected outside at this time of night
to be this silent with the half-melted snow and the lack of life
but none of it is peaceful at all
for silence is the loudest violence

Argentina comes right when I expect her to
not a minute too early or late
being punctual was always a strength for her
and we’ll need it most now

she doesn’t move to get out of her car
and as I slowly stand up with my lone two bags
and the blanket I was given as a baby
I remember I don’t have a destination in mind

Argentina isn’t surprised, to be honest
and she suggests that we go up to her family cabin
and then beyond once we know where we are going
and hopefully we will remember where we have been
