riffing (on a greyhound): #3/7

love (life) goes by

the sound
of the wheels

turning
rolling
riding

is a love affair
of the road

kissing
hugging
holding

the sound of time
passing
as a measurement
of distance

through the glass
a sense
of darkness
moving
as the widespread pinpoints
of life
slide by

farmhouses
or paddock shacks
or hamlets spread wide
across the black
keep moving

while the bus
stands still

and there is love
on the road
between the bitumen
and
a good year

a kiss
again
as the wheels
go round
