the comforting thought-
back roads
with no names
hwys with too many,
both- leading
home

a truck

is the only way to travel.
back seats for extra things
but still just you and me-
i bought it
so
no one else could come

a comforting thought

jazz music, rock
country
mostly cndn-
you don’t take the middle seat
but we’re close

let’s drive
the sunset, rise…
mid afternoon blind
spot-
4 lane pull over
16 lane race,
loose corduroy pull
over a hill, past snake
rails
around the Kenilworth
bend,
crucifix on rear
view

45 degree angle

back roads
with no names
hwys with too many,
both- leading
home

-the comforting thought
