Oklahoma

I want to find you
on a ranch
in the middle of Oklahoma

The tan of your Stetson
the memory of a little girl
looking up into a face
she will forget

I want to find you
with tobacco
on the dashboard

Spice and wood brought
to life by the sun
The smell of summer
of home

I want to find you
in the quiet
when I am finally alone

Hear your voice
through the speaker
of the worn telephone
once more

I want to find you
beside me
with a joke on your tongue

Crow’s feet dancing
at the corners of your eyes
slanted to catch the upturn
of my mouth

I want to find you
in the end
when we return to dust

Great cities buried
by the hands of a clock
just as you were
in the middle of Oklahoma
