across the open

we’ve all been in the

we’ve all been in the
backseat, softly rocked
by the perennial hum
of the road, shifting
into the subtle curve
of sleep. do not
underestimate
the magnetic pull
of gravel, known
to lie in wait
even for our
dream’s dreams

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-
cigarettegirlgreen
is the title
of an album lost somewhere
along Interstate 40
when we were running
away from the rest of our
lives. you pulled it from
the trunk of that old Rabbit
which we knew would never
make it any further than
Nashville, but surprised
us instead, rolling into
Albuquerque. i can’t really
say if we escaped in the
end, but being here with
you, with those confident
chords
kicking in, traps
me all over again
