poem – absolution

13 Sep


just after sunset
driving west
open highway
cool breeze
lavender skies
and a buzzing fly for a companion

crossing the Atlantic
traveling with Charlie
so many miles left to discover
mind wanders
in and out of the moment
muddled memories flash
always the hero
always got the girl
snapping back just as a trucker cuts me off
and the dust from an empty shoulder
fills my car

i answer the phone
say, i will be home soon

just as soon as i figure out
exactly where i am
