Lying in the Field

November 28, 2020

PROMPT: All Talk

What are we looking at?

The clouds.

There's not a damn cloud in the sky!

True, but you're still here, aren't you?

Yeah, I suppose.


Hey, you still doing that writing thing?

Trying to, most days I can't figure out what pens I want to use. Words are harder to find the more you look for them.


How 'bout you? You still doing that football thing?

No. It messed me up too much, you know? Couldn't take it anymore, picked myself over my parents for once.


I know. Hey, I can give you something to write about.

Yeah? What is it?

This. The privilege we have that lets us lay here, watching the clouds.

I thought there wasn't any clouds.

No, but for some reason, we're here anyway. And if it were a year ago, I'd be on the football field instead.

Seems we finally let ourselves go, haven't we?

Is it such a bad thing?
