Dance While Driving Responsibly

I had a show in Iowa last week
and so i drove and drove and drove.

At one point
somewhere in Wyoming...
after an 11 hour stretch,
with two more to go before bedtime
I found myself with the windows down
stereo cranked to a most excellent
classic rock station
which, at the moment was belting out
"Love the One Your With" by CSN
with me singing along...loudly.
A freight truck doing at least 80
passed me on the left
while simultaeously,
a long line of boxcars
rumbled by on the right
and all around us
was wide open space
that should've been oh so quiet
but wasn't.

We make a lot of noise
transporting all of our stuff
from point a to point b.
