mile markers



weekend mini road trip
lots of seat time, radio time
singing along to WSM Nashville
all the way from Kentucky to Monteagle

counting down mile markers
with Miranda fix your makeup girl
and Brad southern comfort zone
and Wagonwheel!

fast and furious interstates
welcome centers and pit stops
finally my exit number
happy to be out of the fast lane

getting close when the road narrows
and the painted lines go missing
Exit Here signs change to
yard sales and apples

getting closer
when the radio fades to static
and quiet comes in through
the open window

view of orchards and vineyards
corn, cows and chickens
curvy roads climbing into
hazy blue mountains

almost there
make that last turn
listen for the crunch of gravel
under the 'tars' that means home
