Gravel, Assault, Pavement,
Whatever you call it,
it helps you move,
helps you live.
You go on a trip,
travel to a far away land.
What are you looking for,
perspective, worldly insight, answers to your problems?
Or purely humorous anecdotes?
Those are cool too.
So you travel.
You meet people,
some are interesting, funny, nice.
Some are not.
You spend hours at highway rest stops,
waiting for that conversation to make all your toils worthwhile.
But, that person, that story, that communication...it never comes.
So you get back in your car and drive.
Back to your life,
and to the people that love you.
