lonesome country road/

©2022 Michael Raven

the world moves slow
that familiar riff repeats
takes me back takes me back
that freedom time
dervish twirling on
that pow wow highway
spinning & hair in wind
pushing through the day like
fires raging summer hot day
sanctuary under veil, smile
hot road naphthalene
rising over ravens
cornrow watching midday

    1. Indeed. It’s an old riff that captivated me from the first time I heard it back in the mid-80s. It’s been playing in my head since I saw a semi-live recent rendition of it on YouTube the other day and it brings me to a place in my mind located in nowheresville plains Upper Midwest Plains, biker leather on, long hair, and getting down with some earthsoul.
