"Flow River Flow Take Me From This Road To Some Other Town"

Poem By Curtis Goodnight

so it is 'bout this day and this year and the river that is life takes me yet again
to some other place.

On fifty a man should have gained some grace
A look at the sage
and a quiet place
Rocker on the front deck

I ride a big motorcycle and
make sheds
in which to build a dreamt sailboat

and I split wood

and get scared 'bout
a San Isabel future

saw my finger instead and  i wondered which was right

Just another day in Paradise
And why couldn't my mind
get any traction?
