"A night as he could remember

Out of great plenty of such nights" (McCarthy).

It had been so long since the man and the boy

Touched the horizon of bright daylight.

While the thunder trundled away

And there was just the rain.

He still wondered and woke

To find the speckle light of day.

The life that they missed

From east to west,

Slackened the strength

They thought they held best.

They lay on the wet ground

By the side of the road.

And finally put their mindset

Into survival mode.
