Deerfield Road

I don’t know where
Deerfield Road goes
but I did
Once upon a time
A nun took it away
One skittish May day
Roughly jerked back
like a jilted June bride

Gone are the dreams
Sweet reveries
I only travel near it now
at night
Dried are my tears
that carved eddy-memories
like gullies into a
Country road
Country heart
Once alive
