Just Passing Through…

Your mountains and prairies are safe from me,

it’s only your roads I want

89 in Utah, 191 in Montana,

route 50 cutting Nevada in half

I’m not looking to stay or upset your order,

like New Yorkers and Californians do

I just want to ride to tomorrow and back

—the view and the memories my home


(Dewey Montana: September, 1996)
