When you hit the Flint Hills
You’ve only gone far enough
if you pull off just past
the cattle crossing and
take a look around or just
look up at the sky which
is as big as they say it is
out here.

But if you can’t afford the
time to stop because you think
you have mountains to see
perhaps you should reconsider
and take that five minute break

Your trail mix and gatorade will
keep, your canteen will hold and
not leak, but you will not know
the that these hills are not
just for gentle rolling but
will unroll your sense of space
and time.
