30. a poem that takes place inside 
a vehicle (car, truck, train, boat, plane)

Going to the Gorgeous Voices Festival
Before we Even Bought the XXL Purple
T-Shirt with a Leunig Design

Singing to our own group's
CD, we barely notice
the country, its green, its

We are mother we are
daughter and we let our voices
free, to roam, explore
in sheer relief.

The freeway has occasional
potholes, but we're all song
and harmony: our travelling
twosome treat -

each other's company
the notes, the humming
car, music that is action
not retreat.
