he watches cars dance on the freeway
from the safety of the cab of his semi
falls asleep at the rest stop with his
Bible in his hand
when he wakes, he washes his face
in the dimly lit bathroom,
with black marker curses on all the walls
when he was a boy of only ten
his daddy showed him how to operate
the tractors on the family farm
from that day on he was hooked
driving for hours on end
finding strange new faces
until he finally forgot how it began
