The rhythm of the road
The rhythm of the road…
 
Brings on a yearning for home
Soothing the urge to roam.
Red and blue highways
No longer hold the allure
Of adventure, horizon.
Distance and time have taken a toll.
People become pins in a map.
Guidebooks and souvenirs,
Mineral shops, Stuckey’s,
The world’s largest gila monster,
My romance with Route 66
Has run its course –
One too many nights in a Wigwam Motel.
The rhythm of the road
Has run its course – distance
Shrinks to a pinhole in time.
