Misplaced thoughts are broken stones.

The sides of the road hold treasures

for those walking by. Old newspapers

separate us from yesterday’s tragedies.

Wisdom is born in diners and roadside

Cafes. Painted signs on old barns hold

the innocence of roadside marketing.

Paper hats have character against the sun.

Popsicles were once five cents. Longer

steps will get you there faster, even if you

don’t want to arrive. Birds work the winds

in every season. The eyes never lie.

Everybody’s your friend till the rent comes
