The ‘C’ in ‘CR’ stands for ‘county’, not country, but who keeps track of that shit anyway?

October 22, 2011

There’s a lot more country road than I thought there was
and a lot less gas in the tank than this trip will take
and the cash in my pocket is hardly worth two gallons
and the watch on my wrist was a yard-sale find
and sometimes the only thing you can do is keep driving
until the gas runs out and at least all this country road
is beautiful this time of year and evening, what with
the sun filtering through the already-turned leaves like that.
