This road runs as if charted by drunken hands,
Winding across lands shapeshifting from flat crop fields
Fused into horizon’s edge, highlands curving ’round
God’s foggy ankle to jaded settler towns
& native villages that defied time’s advance.
I watch all this behind a back seat window as
Pat Matheny’s guitar transforms the landscape to
Nabraskan prairie & Colorado Rockie;
Helps me dull exile’s longing & celebrate
A world that is shrinking before my very eyes.
Note: I have decided to use a new format for posts using segments of poetry over images. Let me know what you think!
