Driving Song
By Stan Galloway

I hear our song on the radio
and the highway blurs,
a wash of blue and green,
and I’m leaning on a shoulder
that’s not yours
and I’m feeling all the rain
that’s falling seven states away.
Traveling without you
makes a minor tune a major ache
that urges me to love and hate that song–
the only pleasure knowing
that the road will sing much better
when I drive it backward.

    Wonderful visual with this poem…
    Who hasn’t listened to a song on the radio and had that experience in some way.
    Lovely! A human experience…
