What Makes You Breathe?

what makes you breathe…

warm May evenings

driving fast with the windows down

Allman brothers blaring

half-smoked cigarette hanging loosely in the ashtray

roads winding through the wooded hills

of North Georgia

Wild Ferns carpeting the roadside embankments

dusky sun mixing with stars and darkness

black, blues, and orange

asphalt wet from the late afternoon rain

steam and dreams rising from the road

carrying me into Summer, straight away.

this is why i endure Winter.
