I drove a long way

to watch the dust turn around in the wind

This copper taste on my tongue

is a casual change from pain.

Along the east side and

beyond the pavement,

the streams cut through valleys

and the songs live in trees.


This ain't gonna stop.


Boots shuffle on

as do the days.

It's a jarring sentiment

and a fluke.

As always my love, you

As always my love, you astound me.
