The Roads

 

Miles and miles of road to come here

but before that ,

dirt roads

brought me to here.

 

Roads

traveled by my father

with his father

in a wagon pulled by horses

brought me here

 

dusty hot roads

edged by cotton fields

brought me here

walking with my mother along

red clay lanes

edged with blackberry bushes

brought me here –

 

My mother walking with

her mother as men

passed on horseback

That road brought me here –

 

both before that and after that

brought me here

where all time combines,

the past,

the present,

the future.

 

Here.
