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

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

aizza2611: The poetries made the book soooo much better. Your writing is Just so so AMAZING and you are so talented. Loved this book Just as much as i liked your other book "texting him". 12/10 😍

auroraaurora1288ag: Every single one of these poems made a mark in my mind I love them. I love how you describe your emotions so deeply, it’s truly beautiful

Elvis Presley : This is an excellent poem with ups and downs..So good..I recommend for all.

apioelizabeth33: I loved the book so much, and I would recommend it to myself..

Rosanna Wiltshire: Great plot, Charlotte is getting slightly annoying at this point, but hopefully she matures further in. Check for spelling and grammatical errors within the story. I found myself re reading a few times because of the spelling of some words or "you're" being used instead of "your".

doveyoga888: 5 stars, I recommend this to anyone looking for encouragement, compassion, or motivation

Claire Kimanuka Rukundo: Special book and I like it very much
