Driving In Maine

It is easy to get lost in July.
Pines mask the horizon in lessening light.
Fog shortens distances
between the seen and unseen.
Lakes materialize like unexpected memories.
Cemeteries surface from depths of leaves,
the gravestones pockmarked by snow and salt.

I take relentless detours.
