2010 April PAD Challenge: Day 24

Just drove all night from Georgia to Ohio and am about to get a little sleep. Knowing I'll probably be even more out of it later this morning than I am now, I'm just going to post now.

For today's prompt, write an evening poem. My initial thought is that this poem would somehow involve the night, but upon further reflection, I guess it could be about evening things up or something.

Here's my attempt for the day:

"Half"

When you drive so late into the night

that you cross to a new state and day;

when you have to roll the windows down

and sing along with every song;

when you worry that you might not know

you're too tired until after the fact;

then, and only then, do you begin

to worry, the moon blocked by those clouds.
