one last goodbye. 2 u.
long stretches. of desert highway. the faraway ranges. of solitude. take in. the setting sun. u didn’t say. anything. for an entire day. the radio played.static endlessly. day of dead voices. between. all the forgotten. places. u held. my hand. your eyes. filled. with the endless. reflection. of far away rain. trading posts. little houses. empty landscapes. with red rock. cutting up. the blue horizon. teec nos pos. gift of sky blue. silver. an old rug. hanging. on the wall. red as 2 breaking. hearts. could get. i couldn’t find any words. to tell u how. sorry i was. how the heart. passes. through places. like the high mesas. of hopi. and the empty. oblivions. of monument valley. how along the way. u somehow. became a ghost. that things. fall apart. and drift away. with each line. of endless road. comes. blanding, moab, canyonlands. and u. running away. until the edges. of nowhere. muted all your cries. stole away. all your tears. pushing everything. towards. the snowy peaks. of the la Sal and the blues.
distant thunderstorms. rumble through. these walls. now. old painting of the rainbow yei. sacred lines. stretching across. your heart. and mine. twilight through. the dust curtains. pushes solitude. into the body. into the brain. a single bed. the sound. of a far away. raven. your naked body. next to mine. still. no words. between us. one last night. 2 share. with u. how 2 forget. tomorrow. and how. 2 say.
that one. last goodbye. 2u.
