skimming, skittering
across dull gray road
twirling, jumping
colorless, bold
blank, stretched
along silhouette sides
perfect, empty
momentum hides
tearing, ripping
through skeleton trees
pulling, fierce
wildly free

trying to find stability

Trying to find the balance
Between ignoring and too much
Between happy ignorance
and apathy

Trying to find the middle
Between goodbye and hello
Between too full
and empty

Trying to find the space
Between passable and wrong
Between giving up and chase
and losing

worried breathing

Uneasy breath
Shaking sigh
Breathe in, breathe out

Tangled confusion
Far away answers
Just don't ever seem to

Importance magnified
Consuming, thinking
Realize it isn't life or

Calm, still
Let go, release it
Let out a slow, steady

I haven’t met you
But you’re familiar
I’ve seen the kindness in your face before
I haven’t met you
But I know I like you
I trust your smiling, wrinkled eyes

northwest travels

The night’s black, it’s dark
Strips of road lines flash by
And we’re on a conveyor belt
Straight red lights, blinking, tall
And shadows of imagined homes
The roving, circling, rotating beacon
Flashing overhead as I count seconds
Small town signs, cafes, half-lit streets
Roads I’ve traveled more times than you
