on a country road at night past fields of corn
sprouting beans in darkness through the car
window i look for the moon and see stars too
this is what sky looks like without city lights
to blitz it, here, the city a turn off by the view.
years of passing vast stretches of farms -
endless fields & barns, a lot of time in cars
watching land go by & figuring the distance
between old wooden hydro poles & marking
how long it took to get anywhere --- so long.
through the car window i look for stars & moon
i consider the distance between them, me & you.
