El Camino

Tj Struska

I gave directions to the El Camino,

Said he wandered a bit off the way.

I don't know if he took it

As he rumbled up the dry highway.

I saw his window glint in the afternoon sun

As the slow curve of Earth

Took it over the bend.

Later, I saw smoke, heard the wailing of a siren,

I wonder if he wandered a bit off the way.

And I refigure the abstract of cloud formation

As the dry wind eats up my land.

I forgot all about the El Camino

As I shut the blinds in the arc of the sun

  • Comment from author about the poem: I guess I'm a poet with different voices. Many of my poem's are not personal, but rather are small stories with real voices in real situations. I don't know what happened to the El Camino, but I heard the whole thing.. Tj
