Solitary

starless moonless windless night
travelling without destination
endless ceaseless neverending
devouring lane dividers
dark between cities, dark between towns

occasional distant star of solitary porch light
far from road, far from kind
seductive beacon of deep dark night.
Drawn to wonder as we streak past sight
To live so removed and far - what it was like;
and if he stares in the dark to glimpse
twin shooting stars of passing cars ...
I feel at one with solitary light

staring void beckons beyond headlights
between nowhere to nowhere
endless ceaseless neverending
travelling without destination
starless moonless windless night
