Road chasing.


Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

some days are perfect for road chasing.

some days, the sunset is so flawless
and the light so golden-rich,
you just have to take the long way home

you chase the stretch of gravel
past rustling corn, quiet tall hay bales,
and crickets who haven’t seen a car in hours

you drive until you find that perfect corner of the world,
where 2 roads meet at a creaky sign –
where orange light pushes shadows long
and rests its peace on
the outskirts of your sleepy town

the heavy sun yawns and throws its rays
on buzzing fields in their perfect order
no one else cares to come down this road, and
you breathe deeper than you have in days

and then, when your soul stills and your heart beats full,
you pocket your road chasing for another day
– and race your lonesome dust cloud
back home.
