Going To Work Along Highway 32 - Poem by Tony Miller

Morning and the wisp
Of wind;

It comes down to
The steeple

In the distance; the day
Launched through

Rain. Motifs
Understated, alive,

Like nouns
Captured in endless dew.

Streets are loved
For their insinuations,

The work, the toil,
The life of speed:

Rough tar -
Rough, straight edged deliberation.
