driving all over the county
and even a little out
looking for work
up and down highways
27 22 28
until i didn’t know
what highway i was on
going north south
west or east
called a number
in the classifieds
for conservation jobs
sounded good
up to the $39.95 service fee
hung up
but as soon as i did
all i could think about
was jack on desolation peak
all by his lonesome
searching the horizon
for signs of a fire
the more i thought
the more i wanted
to call back and say
“send me all you’ve got
whatever the cost
there’s no price tag on nirvana
maybe i’ll call back tomorrow
i thought
of course i never did
