sweetheart, let's head out. let's
drink up the desert asphalt and that last bottle
of johnny walker blue--
one last toast to the copper sunsets,
to the good earth. a pair of
tailgate stargazers, you and i:
roaming curves across the glove compartment map, until
every foldline is worn flannel-soft
and it'd rather stay open
than closed.
let's forget route sixty-six. let's forget 
the numbers
and pick up terra cotta dust--
breathe in the mojave. let's pretend
that the world's already ended
and it's just us.

let's leave the door unlocked
and go
west.
I'm having an affair with the desert. Don't tell the ocean.

I love this~~  it's so relaxed but beautiful and fluid at the same time.  It has the feel of a country music song, but even though I don't like coutry music, I really like this! I think it's because what you describe is familiar, but not cliche.  Very worth a DD:D

I still love folding maps, in this age of electronic gadgets. This, and the American West. I :heart: road trips in the West!
