Road Song


Seger and the poets make romance and lyric references

to the song of the road.


They lie big generous loving lies.


The road sings a song that is hard and screams in your ears,

a banshee drumming on delicate bits and pieces inside your head.

The road whistles, howls and roars

enough to make your ears bleed like

a lover’s scratch worth the pain.


The song can hurt, diminish and delete.


The real road song echoes in your head

at night or

in the quiet places

taunting, ringing, ever present

a noisy tattoo on your senses

never gone, always singing.


God, what a ugly wonderful sound.
