A Travellerspoint blog

days: 13 miles: 2,575


View El Camino ... take me home ... on ms_geneva's travel map.

all i see is concrete
and little white lines
eating up the miles
going nowhere
only stop to eat
fuel
eat
fuel
eat
fuel
sleep

battery died in the mp3 player
when the music stops the rest is...
surprisingly loud
traffic
exhaust
wind
noise
noise
noise
truck
car
truck
car
exit

so tired my eyes start to cross
don't bother to argue with the clerk
oh hell, the key doesn't work
back down the stairs
up
down
up
open
close
sleep?
not yet
wash
change
write
check
charge
toss
turn
sigh
moan
maybe soon
nope
there's the alarm

wash
change
check
pack
check
eat
fuel
drive
drive
drive

Love the Narrative Poems format here. Quite striking.

Reminded me of the personal agony I encountered this past weekend, when I found it necessary to cancel my long-planned trip to Turkey following the receipt of a "Travel Alert" from the U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT cautioning me of ongoing (supposedly peaceful) Anti-American demonstrations which could turn violent. "Americans Go Away! This Is Our Country!!!" Bombings tied to past internal conflicts were also anticipated.
