But Not Quite

But Not Quite

A little walk, perhaps,
The warm evening air,
A half moon punctuates
Our dim cobbled path.
Away from the city’s
Hardened rhythms,
The sad, handsome houses,
Trees darkly wave,
Stars blink encouragement.
Deep in the salt marsh,
The breeze volunteering,
Ravens circle, lazily,
The stony surface sending
Their melancholy cries.
Finally, she takes my hand,
Says, “On nights like this,
It is almost enough.”

At Laetoli,
for seventy feet,
there are footprints,
preserved in volcanic ash,
three and a half million years old.
Down from the trees,
fully upright, pre-human,
a woman and a man
Who knows if she's with child,
what beast they just escaped, or
if they've lost their tribe or are rejoining it.
Tread carefully,
we never know,
how we'll be remembered,
as are they,
