Those blue eyes had girls from the muddy
Mississippi shores running for a fishing pole.
Me, I was hooked on a feelin’.
Your eyelashes had me ready to dangle
my innocence over the waves of your waterbed.

Two years later, a White Knight in tight Levis,
you whisked a microdot-laced damsel
away in your faithful ’72 Beetle.

I wanted to be the sunrise in your tequila,
lick those rivulets of water from your abdomen,
and melt plutonium with our passion…
So I left town.
But you can’t outrun an avalanche
or abort cartwheels mid-turn.

Traveling separate directions was fine,

because time after time, the compass needle

spun us around that straight line,

where the Mississippi and Missouri rivers


Author's Notes:
This is about an old friend and I, who have been linked since meeting when I was fourteen. When I was sixteen, he saved me from being gang-raped. We've been friends since. We have lost track of one another several times through the years, but always find one another again.

** Props going out to my partner in crime, Len, for the avalanche line...

No matter the years, no matter the distance, no matter the silence, the sadness or joy, a true friend is never truely gone and a true friend is a friend again once reunited. I cried at this Jolen!
