March 27th, 2010

Long Distance

I have been driving this highway for 900 days
and i know each mile by heart

Some claim an intimate knowledge of a lover's body
her hips and skin
her freckles as familiar as
his own

This highway is my lover
her flaws I have accepted,
Over 900 days I have become as regretfully patient
as a partner

I watch out for hazards,
unexpected weather;
I turn the lights on in the dark
and keep driving
my eyes ever watching for signs
that I'm almost home
