TEXAS

sleeping

in my truck

off the side of some dirt road

I see a head-lamp

and legs going

out my window

and the head-lamp

moved to a car parked closely

behind me.

I couldn’t understand it

but didn’t care enough

to get out of bed.

in the morning

I got coffee going

on my tailgate

and looked at the

license-plate of the car.

it said:

TEXAS

and somehow that

made sense.

eventually,

the guy got out

of the car

and started packing up

all the gear

he had put out.

then he drove off.

I thought

well,

it’s 7:30am

and I’ll never understand

my own species

but

at least they

are getting

the message

about me.
