Somewhere

-Audio Player-

I’ve always
enjoyed
driving

music loud

momentum
reminding
mortality

that I do
indeed

exist

but my favorite

is that feeling of

knowing
that you’re going
somewhere

because

somewhere
gives you hope

somewhere
is a stranger
to the where
you’ve been
before

the where
you’ve been
that denies
new truth
new choice

the where
painted in the tire tracks
of your good intentions

that smells
of spent gasoline
fueled by the meals
you spent alone

looking
for yourself

in the cursive
of the lines
in your pocket sized
notebook

you see

somewhere
doesn’t know you
well enough

to hold
where
you’ve been

against you

somewhere
is a chance
for something
new

and somewhere
seems better
to me

than the
where
I’ve known before

so

I’ll keep driving
for now

at least

until somewhere

catches up to me…
