Dry Spell (First Place - Poetry)

by Trisha Castillo

we’re back to the
same question again
pulled out from where it
was sleeping in the
backseat of the car
sometimes it’s easier
to talk about things
while staring out the
window at the world
beyond the concrete
but neither of us
know exactly what
to say or how to solve
this problem racing
forward alongside the
yellow painted lines
and so we just focus
on the surroundings
and search for
insight in the fields
and the fruit stands
