i see the days 
have covered themselves with so many nights 
along this road 
that turns in so many ways 
between fields with grass above the knees 
and a breeze...that breeze... 
that used to blow her hair across her cheeks 
while she spun the car radio dial 
looking for songs 
that were new to us then. . . 
now familiar to my heart
