Knoxville, TN – Home

Again the road removes my tongue
And it feels like it needs to be pulled
Like a Briggs and Stratton lawnmower engine
To find the phrases that slide so easily elsewhere

This trip has been like no other
Strange calms in turbulent moments
Small glittering gems on postage stamp stages
Standing on fences listening to whispers
In touch with my surroundings in a detached way

Not too busy
