Flimsy Love, Carefree Highway


Like faded paint down middle of highway,

Stilted messagethree flimsy lines

To trace adventures, truck trips we made,

Wild wonder on the run

How could you condense those times?

Season of invincible youth—hope and

Dreams grasped in both hands—hearts

Near-bursting with untamed joy…

We’d sing the shine off the sun;

Pray half-saved prayers that the

Old tires would hold, bald as

Eagles soaring up and far and

No way back…

You left it on your pillow,

Wrinkled notebook page torn:

“We had fun—

 You thought it was love,

But what can I say— ”
