We Drive the Perimeter
We drive the perimeter of Tennessee
We drive the perimeter
First to see your parents then to see mine
I point out that there’s no discernible ridge in Ridgeville
It’s not that kind of ridge you say
I have no idea what you’re talking about
A day in Ridgeville with your parents
Then a day in Hawthornebury with mine
Where are the hawthorn berries you ask
Up on the Ridgeville ridge I say
Not even a smile
The water comes and goes
Over time its imprint forms the river
Don’t hold on to illusions
Let them pass
What imprints do you want to form you?
That One Thing
What’s that one thing that’s important above all others?
fits like a glove
I don’t think that meeting my goals will get me to my goal
no need to shove
What’s that one thing?
flies like a dove
from below and above
It forms all of life and existence
the very nature of
It’ll come to me… if I go to it.
