Meeting Your Grandfather

If you want to meet your grandfather

get in a car and head out to the desert

put your hand out the window

and feel the air slide through your fingers

listen to the music pouring out the engine

watch the world disappear behind you

and where the highway ends and the road turns to dust

where the world shimmers and disappears

you’ll find him there


in every quiet breath.

  1. Sitting in a cafe. Can’t cry in public. Captured completely from just a few verses in. Magnifcent piece
