It's been years since I went
to a drive-in movie.
All of us
piled into the bed of the truck
a mass of bodies, blankets, and pillows
laughing at every joke on screen
and between us,
passing popcorn and sodas
and silently counting the shooting stars.
I'm more focused on catching each one
to make the same wish.
I'm lying on the back seat.
Paul and Maria & Rachel
separated by a decade
fight over the radio
and exchange corny jokes.
rough against my cheek
serves as a decent pillow.
I can't remember the last time
I had so much fun.
Maybe things are getting better
but I can't be sure.

Does anyone else out there want to share their memories of the Basin Drive In? Kathy
