out past the curfew
& out past the fence
childs in the woods behind town
with flashlights & blankets
a tarp for a tent
a wild place to lay ourselves down
but us two were too scared
try as we might
to sleep under screech owls
& moths in the night
we ran back to your house
before it was light
& Tarzan'd the apple tree
up to the balcony

that was the summer
that we both turned 10
before you left our neighborhood
your sister your mom & you
changed names again
to escape your step-dad for good
I thought that I saw you
the other night
outside a sports bar in neon light
but I should know better
than trust my sight
how I've wondered Davy
if often you thought of me
