Elegy of the Open Road

Elegy of the Open Road

I lie here soaking up invisible dew and sweat particles
Draining the atmosphere dry of memories-
-of 1 a.m. energy spilling out of fingers slightly stroking chords

clanging smoothly and in beat to the moods of lovers constantly
finding their feet
(I want to pour myself into you searching and digging till
I find parts of you leading to real enlightenment)

Visions of islands seemingly static in their beauty
Encompassing me with fantasies of you and I residing there,
overlooking sunshine and starlight sipping the surf

we’d transpire across vineyards tasting wine red as blood,
carefully handled like dolls of your childhood-
-left to tan in the sun

or be transitive as a winter thaw,
melting into each other endlessly

again with my lofty dreams heavy as stone,
I want to be real and truthful as my desire to travel the open road,
relentlessly pursuing beauty secretive and reclusive as the night air

But your eyes casts emeralds into my soul,
and your kisses melts those icy roads,
making them sturdy and strong as the redwood trees

then for what use is the road?

When your being stretches out like Colorado mountains?
when your body is soft and smooth like freshly falling snow,
simple and quiet; like a winter forest at night

I can confide everything in you,
listening to my nonsense as patiently as
shorelines simmering salty in the sun

with you containing all things one would seek of the open road,
of what use would I have travailing chipped pavement
in bloody shoes weeping under the stars?

when this bed smells of you…

"tonight I can write the saddest lines..." Pablo Neruda
