Highway 66

A short poem

Ray Harvey
Sep 2 · 1 min read

Thin blue highway hugging the soft edge of night,
along this strange western town burning
with apricot light
like a necklace laid across a swell
of grass, over some vast New Mexican plain,
it fills me with a yearning
I’ve never quite been able to quell,
or explain.
