.....on the way to Houston

 



detour  / searching/ for something to say

the afternoon sun /traveling /down a long stretch of highway


doing 95
he suddenly stops
to pick yellow daisies

ba
...lancing


states of emotion
fields of daisies
occur

clouds
crossing over
the  borders
of the Sabine River

dozing
and waking
the landscape
still,
the same


the sun
moves
into
the shade

only the gate
still remains 
in the field

an army jeep
left
at the junkyard

a paper sign
'hanged' 
on a tree

two police cars--
9 people  stand
on the side
of the road
hands behind
their backs
cuffed ---
the
beginning
of
understanding 
"time"
