I’m willing to travel
If the reason and goal
Are pressing. I did
Buy a car just to
Take her to Indio
To see her dad,
And later in the same

Car drove her to Marfa
To see her sister,
But driving now? Where
Would I go and what
Would be my purpose?
I’d have to sell my Jeep
And buy something new.

Turning my chair toward
The wall there are
All those books to visit --
As involving as anything
I might find on a road,
More so if I select wisely.
I’ve read of /Childe Harold/,

Not held in high regard
By most. Perhaps I’ll
Read /Don Juan/, and if
I’ve been there before, no
Matter. I’ve been most
Places. My Jeep is precious
And I’m not easily bored.
