those are corn rows, not 1,000 paths less travelled…..

The truth is

there is nothing on the other side of the corn field
it’s just more
or the farmers house
he’s got a shot gun telling ya
you got 5 secs
get off his property,
and don’t bother pointing to the candle in
the window,
he’ll just tell ya, he forgot to blow it out
after he pulled
his head out of the oven.

Overalls and plaid shirt
don’t always mean

– beautiful fall afternoon though.
