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

clayton smith: Hey very good poem read mine if you wouldn't mind

pencil: Something pulls at the heart and then distracts and makes it not pull. There is a urgency a haste to read and rally at the schizophrenic mind. But the schizophrenic mind is never sane and it is very unrelenting and not reliable. The images come and go and there is not much one can speak to someon...
