Highway Ghost Towns

There is no visible end to the world surrounding me I can’t remember the last time I could say that

Out here, pavement is the only semblance of humanity. The whole earth held down by this one stretch of highway

It is the division between what is the ground and what is the galaxy. And only I and the sparse yucca interrupt the horizon’s flat line

If I stay long enough, I may forget the word “we.” Because you can’t touch where no radios reach

This is a land ruled by my own decree But the sheriff is not new in town when there is no town

It’s more than you, no one can touch me. Though it may be That out here, I’m alone.

Alone isn’t bad though, alone is being free. At last I am free to heal.
