Common Road Song
As much as you privilege the coast I stay stubborn toward the interior In hot pursuit of wild goose made weary and wearier Criss-crossing the country, rest stop on the edge of baloney Later on eyes dewy on the back end of a Lifetime movie The whole wide world wastes its breath at every critical juncture Who is this elusive "they" changing infrastructure? Big deal: it's a dam, a hole in the ground, a burial mound And I am forever determined to stay miserable in the backseat of a car My mind is unmoored with mental space unencumbered Who really cares how the Interstate Highway System is numbered? Math means 400 by 65, 300 by 75, 200 by 85 Stay awake, stay alive when you drive on 95 or I-5 or I-75 or I-55 or even the 15 North to south, eye on salinity downstream And no: I don't know just where I think I am going No, I don't know just where I think I am No, I don't know just where I think I am from But I have a pretty good idea just how far I've come Two trains leave the station One gets rerouted, the other's really not built for speed Two trains leave the station One sort of putters around, the other's thinking more theoretically Two trains leave the station But all things being equal, both would really rather stay inside Two trains leave the station But all anyone really wants to do is drive
