#1
I need the help of highway dreams,
behind the wheel, a skeptic and my
blank expression in the passenger seat.
One hand wiping clean condensation on the window
the other busy in my pocket finding lint.
I think of my first love, Kathryn,
and all the memories I’d like to count.
Looking through the glass
all I can make out is black
and blacker.

You know it’s time to close your eyes
when power plants and rolling hills
look like creatures in the night.
