All Terrain

all terrain vehicle forest road movieWalking along an unpaved road,
coated with oil to keep the dust down,
I stopped to look at the edge of the woods,
from the other side,
thinking of the animals that
could be watching me from there
and might step out
from behind the trees
at any moment
but choose not to,
and heard a distant squeak,
and again another squeak,
with a rumble growing underneath,
and turning my head to look down the road,
saw three headlights
coming around the corner,
a family riding on all terrain vehicles,
who, passing me as I watched,
could have stopped
to stand with me,
but chose not to.
