Road Radio by Joseph Stanton

Hearing a song today, sudden on my car radio,
a song I heard often forty years ago,
when I drove
hour after hour, day after day, night after night
across the continent,

thinking, as I did then,
about love or what I thought love was
and not knowing, really,
who I was or might be,
but just driving, driving, driving,

and playing over and over again in my mind
that irritating, inescapable tune,
and wondering, as I did then, why I needed to get somewhere
and wondering if I even knew
where I would be.
