Alone In The Distance

old country road

I’ve made pilgrimages
back over the roads
we first drove
when we moved to Texas

country roads
between
Fort Worth and Decatur

footnotes of the West

blackbirds up high on wires

brush fields
dust
and hills

yellow horizons and dust again

but driving back across
these roads
cannot erase our moments together

so I look these landscapes
in the eye
and feel them in my heart

every
little farmhouse
alone in the distance
