I see you through cracked windshields
my dark sunglasses and
trees that cannot hold their leaves
and drifts that will not stay…
dirt roads that carry on that way.
You wave to me
through barbed fence wire
old tractor tires
and houses with nobody home
things that could not be repaired…
things that were left sitting there.
We stretch along horizon lines
and dip below the buttes
your mud stuck to my boots
a piece of you you’re pleased to share
a piece I’m pleased to take from you…
your sky an ever changing hue.
And you see me through rearview mirrors
windows down and open doors
places I have gone before
my headlights through the dust I stir
how quick I am to roam….
you rise up to meet me home.
